Why do I look for God?

Jesus answered, "You've come looking for me not because you saw God in my actions but because I fed you, filled your stomachs - and for free.  John 6:23

My Father is right now offering you bread from heaven, the real bread.

The way to a man's heart is through his belly, they say! Is Jesus being pointed here? What's his tone? Our response to God is often complex; mixed motives allied to simple devotion, as jumbled as a buffet. Jesus moves on to talk of himself as bread, offered right now, in front of us - the real bread, the genuine pure article.

I receive Jesus' question 'Why have you come looking for me?' What do I discern he wants to offer me.  I allow such questions space within me, room for a heartfelt dialogue.
