Generosity as Witness — 6 August 2023

Tenth Sunday after Pentecost  Proper 13 (18)  6 August 2023

Sermon: “Generosity as Witness.” 

Scripture: Matthew 14:13-21

Synopsis: When the crowd of people gets hungry and the disciples suggest Jesus send them away, Jesus sees it as an opportunity for the disciples. “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat,” he says. Everyone (maybe especially the disciples!) receives God’s generosity in this story, and perhaps the generosity of one another as well, as the initial sharing of loaves and fishes may have inspired others to share what they had as well.
