“Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.” (John 6:27)
The 5,000 who had just been miraculously fed by the hand of the Lord misconstrued the message beyond the sign. They wanted the Lord to give them food, instead of inquiring about the meaning behind the sign. Verse 27 is the key to this passage: every good gift that comes to you is a gratuity from God. The good news is that God’s gifts to you are not predicated on your response to Him. Rather, God’s graciousness to you is a matter of His character and doesn’t depend upon your works.
So much in life depends on your outlook – and the best way to improve it is to look up!
