It is the same with spiritual bread. To eat everyday is so crucial, yet it is so easy to forget to have this daily bread. Even here when I am living amongst christians 24/7 I find I need to constantly remind myself that the most vital part of my journey with God involves taking spiritual bread daily. We often fall into the temptation of just taking what ever spiritual food is convenient at the time. We settle for second best - having our quiet time a few minutes before going to sleep, praying while brushing our teeth, you name it. We don’t make a conscious effort to feed ourselves quality ‘daily bread’ because that simply takes too much effort.
But what if the daily bread He has to offer us is a lot better than the ones we’ve been taking? What if all we need to get this much tastier bread is a little extra time? A little extra effort? Taking quality bread daily will not be easy, but I’m confident that the end result will be worth while. Jesus teaches us to pray for our bread daily. He says man does not live on physical bread alone, but by every word of God. He is eager to give us bread that will satisfy; the question is, will we take it?
Give us this day our daily bread
