Our Christian faith tells us that we are in the world but not of the world. Yes, we live in the world. Yes, the world tells us that there is not enough. But we don’t have to believe what the world tells us, because we’re not of the world. We are of God, and God transcends the world, God is more than the world. Who are we going to believe: the finite, limited people of the world; or the infinite, all-encompassing God? Who are we going to believe: the disciples who told Jesus that they didn’t have enough bread and fish to feed the 5,000; or Jesus, who said, in true Nike fashion, “Just do it – just pass out the food. You’ll see that there is enough."
