Мысли на каждый день года по церковным чтениям из Слова Божия

Феофан Затворник


Насытив четыре тысячи семью хлебами, Господь «тотчас восшед в лодку, прибыл в пределы Далмануфские», как будто ничего особенного не сделано. Таково истинное доброделание — делать и делать, не обращая внимание на сделанное, и всегда забывая задняя, простираться впредняя. У исполненных доброты это бывает как бы естественно. Как богатырь поднимает большие тяжести, не замечая того, а малосильный и малую тяжесть подняв, не может этого забыть; так сильный добротой всякое добро делает без напряжения, только бы случай; а скудный добротою без напряжения не может обойтись: оно и памятно ему, и он все на него посматривает, все озирается. Доброе сердце жаждет доброделания, и не бывает довольно, когда не наделает добра вдоволь, как не бывает сыт человек, пока не наестся. Как здесь, пока чувствуется голод, помнится обед, а когда голод утолен, то все забыто. Так и у истинно доброго помнится доброе дело, пока еще не сделано, а когда сделано, то и забыто.

Отрывки к тексту:
Eph 1:7-17
Mar 8:1-10
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace
which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight
He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him
with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him
also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will,
to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory.
In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise,
who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.
For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints,
do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers;
that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.
In those days, when there was again a large crowd and they had nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples and *said to them,
“I feel compassion for the people because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat.
If I send them away hungry to their homes, they will faint on the way; and some of them have come from a great distance.”
And His disciples answered Him, “Where will anyone be able to find enough bread here in this desolate place to satisfy these people?”
And He was asking them, “How many loaves do you have?” And they said, “Seven.”
And He *directed the people to sit down on the ground; and taking the seven loaves, He gave thanks and broke them, and started giving them to His disciples to serve to them, and they served them to the people.
They also had a few small fish; and after He had blessed them, He ordered these to be served as well.
And they ate and were satisfied; and they picked up seven large baskets full of what was left over of the broken pieces.
About four thousand were there; and He sent them away.
And immediately He entered the boat with His disciples and came to the district of Dalmanutha.
