[ The Glory Unveiled ]
When they had all had enough to eat, he [Jesus] said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” ( John 6:12 )
NB~[Jesus made this statement after feeding 5,000 men with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes.]
Most humans seem to have a helpless inclination to being wasteful. We love to discard things so easily. The filth around us reiterate the truth of this statement. Once we get what we want from someone or something, we discard them. We don’t seem to think the afterwards. Jesus, our model is not wasteful. As a good Shepherd, He will leave the 99 and go after the one. This is the nature of the man we imitate and hope to be like both on the inside and outside of ourselves. He has an attitude of love, compassion and possessiveness. We need to hold in high esteem anything and everything under our care. Multiplication comes by faithful stewardship in the economy of our kingdom. Let nothing be wasted.
Prayer_Bead: Lord Jesus, the Shepherd of my soul and spirit, instill in me the attitude of management and responsibility.
