OT Lesson: Deuteronomy 8:1-3 (Man does not live by bread alone)
Gospel Lesson: John 6:1-15 (Jesus feeds the 5,000)
Jesus took 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread and fed a crowd of 5,000 men, plus women and children. The miracle reminded the crowd of how God gave the Israelites daily bread called “manna” which miraculously appeared on the ground every morning. Just like our bodies need daily bread in order to live, so our souls need communion with our creator in order to have true life. Jesus, the bread of life, is our source of true life!
