TODAY (Green) Is 55:1-3; Rom 8:35, 37-39; Mt 14:13-21

NEXT WEEK (Green) 1 Kgs 19:9a, 11-13a; Rom 9:1-5; Mt 14:22-33

Jesus tells the disciples to “give them food yourselves.” But the disciples cannot satisfy the crowds’ hunger until they give Jesus all they have—a meager five loaves and two fish. Jesus blesses these gifts and returns them to the disciples who then have enough to feed the crowds, even with “fragments left over.” It is not the meager resources we have which count, but what Jesus can do with these resources when we give all we have to him. With Jesus’ power and blessing, the disciples (and we) can do what they cannot do on their own.

CHRISTIANSHIP STEWARDSHIP
What are the rewards of Stewardship? We seek no “rewards” for our stewardship; we do it with the joy of serving God. Stewardship is the responsibility of the Christian life, making our prayers, worship, study of the Scriptures, Christian action truly sincere. Our whole life is a partnership with God. We cannot “give” anything to God; but we can” fulfill” God by using our gifts wisely and sharing with others.
Your giving is the key to the success of church plans and programs. To help us meet our obligations, please pray about TITHING and become GOOD STEWARDS by obtaining Offertory Envelopes available in the Marian Hall as a weekly reminder to support your church
