Life's blessings

John 6:24-35 

In the first reading, in spite of the complaints of the people, the Lord still gives them bread from heaven.

In the gospel, Jesus invites us to focus our attention on the physical food to the food that lasts forever.  These are the following:

1. Jesus - Jesus is our source of life; all his teachings and accounts inspire us to life.

2. Love - a love that transcends to the presence of God who is pure love.

3. Opportunities to life - instead of wasting our time away focusing on the negatives, let us use all opportunities of life to multiply life in us, in others, and most especially, in our relationship to God.

Then we shall know that life is not a curse, but a blessing.
