Mark 8: 17-18
Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: “Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember?
Despite having just witnessed a miracle specifically involving food, Jesus’ disciples begin to worry about bread. Their worry cripples their faith. My worry cripples my faith. Yours does too. Our hearts are hardened. We have eyes but fail to see. We have ears but fail to hear. We readily forget.
“In the sermon on the mount, Jesus says, Do not worry because nothing that ultimately matters is at risk.” – @paul_stewart
This is a part of a series of daily reflections on the season of Lent.
