GOSPEL PEARLS

Otherwise our lives would be insignificant 

They were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things. (Mk 6, 34)

The Apostles gathered together with Jesus
and reported all they had done and taught.
He said to them,
“Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.”
People were coming and going in great numbers,
and they had no opportunity even to eat.
So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place.
People saw them leaving and many came to know about it.
They hastened there on foot from all the towns
and arrived at the place before them.

When Jesus disembarked and saw the vast crowd,
his heart was moved with pity for them,
for they were like sheep without a shepherd;
and he began to teach them many things. (Mk 6:30-34)

Jesus, who became more important to the apostles than their daily bread, is now a point of reference that indicates the way of God preceding it as a shepherd. Jesus gives meaning to man's life, offering himself to everyone adequately. Let’s remember to thank the Lord every day for the meaning He gives to our lives which otherwise would be meaningless.
