Do you ever hold back from giving or including others because you feel what you have to offer is not enough, not nice enough?
Here’s how Fr. James Martin, SJ suggested we view this common insecurity it in his excellent book, Jesus: A Pilgrimage.
All we need to do is bring what little we have, generously and unashamedly. At Tabgha, the disciples seemed embarrassed that there was not enough for the crowd and were about to send everyone away hungry. But Jesus knew that whatever there is, God can make more of it. But first we are asked to offer our loaves and fishes, no matter how inadequate they may seem. Only then can God accomplish the kind of true miracle that occurred at Tabgha.
