Lenten Meditation-Mark 6:34
34As he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.
The crowd followed our Lord to a deserted place:
They are searching for meaning; searching for a leader; searching for a king; searching for a messiah; searching for God.
Following the crowd, I wonder where they are going?
Searching for hope; searching for love; searching for ourselves; searching, searching, forever searching.
Who do we follow? Who will lead? We are lost souls searching.
Sitting in the blazing sun. Listen to the teacher.
Searching for a cure. What ails us?
Sitting in this wasteland. Search the lonely crowd of faces. Souls all trapped behind the faces.
Searching for God’s kingdom; the kingdom lies within.
Searching for words; searching for thoughts; lost sheep looking for a shepherd. Sitting in the wasteland, listening to the teacher teach.
Searching for food–loaves and fishes–loaves and fishes–loaves and fishes–bread of life–fisher of men. Pray to God. Amen.
