Today's gospel reminds us of the virtues of compassion and generosity. In the miracle of feeding the five thousand in Matthew 14:13-21, God's compassion overflows as He heals the sick, teaches the people, and feeds them all rather than sending them away. By blessing the generosity of a young boy who offered everything he had, Jesus feeds thousands of people until they are filled. We must remember that nothing is too small to offer to Jesus because every offering made with love is useful.
