John 6: 1-14
“Liberation is ours which means we have to be a part of liberating in order for our own to be sustained. Letting go of what was for what could be. Thanking God for the provisions, looking at what we have and making sure everyone can be fed.
So why do we get stuck in scarcity? More than ever we take in the lie that bigger is better, more is more and we have to make sure we are not left without. We are intelligent people but when it comes to scarcity and abundance we have been conditioned to make sure our personal needs take precedence while pushing away our inborn instinct toward interdependence. We have bought into the colonizing culture that puts priority on self while ignoring our need for others and the abundance that is rich in the recognition of what we are together… The erasure of interdependence is literally killing us.”
