Acts 6:8-15; Ps 119; John 6:22-29

Things of eternal life

Today’s readings mark a change in tone. We hear of Stephen’s witness and then the danger he is in. In the Gospel Jesus recognises that the crowd were more interested in the food than the message or the sign. He calls them to look for the food that endures for eternal life. Being a Christian is not always easy. If taken seriously it involves danger, it involves seeking the things of eternal life which are not always of this world. How much is that reflected in how I live my life?
