Reading (1 John 4:7-10)

[7] Beloved friends, let us love one another; because love is from God; and everyone who loves has God as his Father and knows God. [8] Those who do not love, do not know God; because God is love.

[9] Here is how God showed his love among us: God sent his only Son into the world, so that through him we might have life. [10] Here is what love is: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the kapparah for our sins.

Gospel (Mark 6: 34-44)

[34] When Yeshua came ashore, he saw a huge crowd. Filled with compassion for them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd, he began teaching them many things.

[35] By this time, the hour was late. The talmidim came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s getting late. [36] Send the people away, so that they can go and buy food for themselves in the farms and towns around here.”

[37] But he answered them, “Give them something to eat, yourselves!” They replied, “We are to go and spend thousands on bread, and give it to them to eat?” [38] He asked them, “How many loaves do you have? Go and check.” When they had found out, they said, “Five. And two fish.”

[39] Then he ordered all the people to sit down in groups on the green grass. [40] They sat down in groups of fifty or a hundred.

[41] Then he took the five loaves and the two fish, and, looking up toward heaven, made a b’rakhah. Next he broke up the loaves and began giving them to the talmidim to distribute. He also divided up the two fish among them all.

[42] They all ate as much as they wanted, [43] and they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces and fish. [44] Those who ate the loaves numbered five thousand men.
