Kingdom of God

Mark 8:20-21
“When I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many full baskets of fragments did you pick up?” They answered [him], “Seven.” He said to them, “Do you still not understand?”

When Jesus showed His followers what would happen if they willingly shared their food with others…miraculously everyone was fed. And there were even leftovers! We can believe that Jesus magically multiplied the food…and he certainly could have done that. But how much more beautiful a miracle to simply demonstrate that by sharing the little they had…others would then follow their example and share what they had as well…and that in doing this all would be cared for? Jesus was all about bringing the “kingdom of God” alive in the present. We are called to do the same. “Do you still not understand?”
