“Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke them….”
If we are oriented toward Christ, we understand that He is always blessing offerings and ‘feeding’ multitudes. We understand that teaching is our offering, it is what we offer to God, our colleagues, our students and our communities. We also understand that we must do more than offer, we must first ask for our offerings to be blessed. We are all like the little boy with the five loaves and two fishes…
We realize that our offerings are so small they need God’s blessing.
We trust that God will take our offerings, bless them and multiply them.
We offer the little that we have spontaneously in an outpouring of our love for God and others.
We are thankful that God accepts and blesses and multiples beyond our greatest hopes and expectations.
We let go of our offerings and let God.
We keep offering and we keep asking and we keep thanking.
May God bless all of the offerings happening in classrooms today and this year!
