“More Then Bread”

John 6:26-27  “. . . . . Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.”

Strange, I was out doing outreach and the older guys were simply holy terrors–I never had enough for them, the younger ones, always seem to want my time.  I have an older friend who has it all–and his addiction is on what he has or does not have, to the point now I am not sure I want to spend any time with him.  For Jesus is telling us that why we do what we do is always more important then the things we do.  It is the love of God that counts, not the things that we do only in the hope of eternal reward. Last week I had an older former priest friend asked me ‘Why do you work with these people?” The only answer I can give–it is for the love of God, there is no other reason, no hope of eternal reward either, just simply THE LOVE OF GOD!  Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
