The Bread That Satisfies

Our Daily Bread -- The Bread That Satisfies
May 18, 2016

Read: Luke 10:38-11:4
Bible in a Year: 1 Chronicles 4-6; John 6:1-21

Give us each day our daily bread. —Luke 11:3

I learned to recite the Lord's Prayer as a boy in primary school. Every time I said the line, "Give us today our daily bread" (Matt. 6:11), I couldn't help but think about the bread that we got only occasionally at home. Only when my father returned from his trip into town did we have a loaf of bread. So asking God to give us our daily bread was a relevant prayer to me.

How curious I was when years later I discovered the booklet Our Daily Bread. I knew the title came from the Lord’s Prayer, but I also knew it couldn’t be talking about the loaf of bread from the baker’s shop. I discovered as I read the booklet regularly that this "bread," full of Scripture portions and helpful notes, was spiritual food for the soul.

It was spiritual food that Mary chose when she sat at the feet of Jesus and listened attentively to His words (Luke 10:39). While Martha wearied herself with concern about physical food, Mary was taking time to be near their guest, the Lord Jesus, and to listen to Him. May we take that time as well. He is the Bread of Life (John 6:35), and He feeds our hearts with spiritual food. He is the Bread that satisfies. —Lawrence Darmani

I sit before You now, Lord, and want to learn from You. My heart is open to hear from You in Your Word. Teach me. Feed me.

“I am the bread of life.” Jesus

INSIGHT: Martha was lovingly rebuked by Christ for her attitude in Luke 10:38-42. Yet later, in John 11:17-27, she made a profound statement of trust and dependence upon Christ following the death of her brother, Lazarus. Then in John 12:1-7 she once again served Jesus and His disciples, yet without any mention of the kinds of frustration pictured in Luke 10. It seems that Martha had grown in her relationship with Christ. Dennis Fisher
