The Power of Love

When God asks us to do something, we often respond with
doubt because we’re not sure we have what it takes to get the job done. Just as
the Disciples believed they didn’t have enough food to feed five thousand
people with five loaves of bread and a couple fish, we question whether we have
enough to share with others. Our doubt isn’t limited to feeding the hungry; we
doubt whether we can afford to donate to the Church, or help the poor. We doubt
whether we have enough patience to show those fighting against us that we love
them. We even sometimes doubt whether we have enough love, to love. But when
the Disciples included God in the plan there was not only enough, but an
overabundance of leftovers. The power of love, when we love as God loves, and
when we allow the love of God into our hearts, will always provide enough for
us to share with others.
