Jesus was an insightful and creative Teacher beyond compare. His words and actions were so aligned, that He Himself was also the Lesson. He used everyday experiences to bring awareness to the spiritual life, God’s love and His kingdom.
Jesus used the forgotten bread as an opportunity to teach the Disciples about the leaven of negative influence and shallow thinking (Mk. 8:14-21). Let us imitate our Lord, and use every opportunity to impart His Word that leads to life eternal.
Lord Jesus, teach us how to be ‘hungry’ students. May our openness to learning from You shape us to be effective teachers of Your love, mercy, joy and peace in our world. Amen.
