This morning, as I read and pray, the Dallas Police and their families are foremost in my thoughts. The story of feeding the multitude in Matthew, interpreted Spiritually, is very poignant today. Breaking bread is explaining Truth to the crowds and that Truth is the power of Love, which always destroys error.
Matthew 15:32-38 reads, “Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. And his disciples say unto him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude? And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And they said, Seven, and a few little fishes. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets full. And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children.”
So often the news media continues to incite more fear and anger, so we need to limit our viewing of this repetitive explosives, and pray to express more Love and compassion. Love is the only Power there is that can destroy hatred.
