For what do we hunger? Food is one of the basic necessities of life. However, our desire for experiences comprising pleasure, travel and relationships are also parts of our appetite. In truth, when these are all satisfied, we still end up being hungry again.
Our Lord provides for our daily needs (Mk. 8:1-10). But in the end, only He truly satisfies and fulfils all our longings. When He made us, He lovingly created a space in each of us that is satiated only by Him. Feed on the Lord and be really filled.
Loving Lord, give us a hunger for Your word and Your very Self. May we come to recognise that only in You, with You and through You are we ever truly satisfied. Amen.
