Our Daily Bread

Monday, December 17, 2012

 "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." 

    Jesus told his disciples that they should pray, "Give us this day our daily bread."

The Lord feeds even the sparrows and we can trust God to take care of our every-day physical needs.  Is there any one of my readers who hasn't eaten today?  I certainly hope not!  But no matter how much you eat today, you will have to eat again tomorrow.  Bread is good, but the satisfaction you get from eating it does not last forever--if you remain satisfied for 8 hours you are doing incredibly well!

 We can also trust the Lord to give us daily spiritual nourishment.  In John 6:35, Jesus said, "I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst."  Is there any one of my readers who hasn't feasted on the Word of God today?  I certainly hope not!  The Lord prepares a feast for your soul each day.  If you read the Bible yesterday, it is not enough; you need to read more everyday.  

Reading the Bible is one of the most important things you can do, because the nutrition you receive from the Bread of Life lasts forever-- it is eternal.

Lord, give us this day our daily bread, the Bread of Life!


  1. I read the Bible at least once a week. Perhaps it is not enough but I think it is better than not read it at all. I find the Bible wonderful and as you say it is the bread for our souls. All the books and stories contained in the Bible are worth to be read, especially the John Gospel.
    By the way I'd like to wish you and your family Merry Christmas!

  2. Thanks! Yes the Gospel of John is very wonderful. I like it particularly because it shows how much love Jesus had for his disciples: "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15)

    Have a wonderful New Year!
