Abandoned toys

I am the bread of life. (John 6: 35)

Italiano Español

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” (John 6: 35-40)

The real hunger that must be finally satisfied in mankind is not material, but spiritual hunger. Only in this way can we feel at least a little happiness. For what we seek is eternal life, which is the only way to experience true joy. With material things we are all like children who receive a much sought after toy as a gift and then, after a few hours, abandon it in the corner of our room. Only God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) is eternal and capable of granting us true happiness. Let us, therefore, always follow Jesus's teaching steadfastly, so that one day we may deserve eternal life.
