8th January 2019 Tuesday – Tuesday after Epiphany
1 John 4:7-10, Mark 6:34-44
“A heart full of unfailing love and mercy”
In today’s gospel, Jesus’ heart was full of pity when He saw the needs of the crowd, and He sat down and taught them. Later, he did not send them away to look for their own food, but He performed the miracle of the five loaves and two fish and fed them. The heart of God - the heart of the Good Shepherd is not for us to admire from a distance. Rather, we are called to actively imitate so as to make His heart ours.
Jesus, let me imitate your heart, the heart of the Good Shepherd so that I can use my five loaves and two fish, the little and much that I have for the sake of the many who depend on me.
Question for reflection:
How can I actively imitate Jesus today?
