Enough Is Enough
In the loaves and fishes story, Jesus multiplies what he is given and feeds everyone. So, what has that got to do with you? Well, notice that nothing is called down from heaven to cover a "lack" of something. Note that people are fed beginning with what is given, available, in hand. The miracle is that what was in stock is enough for God and you to get the job done. Say what? So often we think we don't have enough of whatever, talent, energy, skill, patience, and we pray that God will supply what is missing? Nothing is missing. We have enough. Our prayer might then rather be to ask the Power, God, Absolute, Ultimate Reality, to energize us to get the job done with what we have. Don't short-change yourself. You are enough so many more times than you think.
