Daily bread

PILGRIMS, my prayer and Bible study group, meets Thursday nights. You could say that since I've joined the cell, I've become very fond of and close to this funny, sporty, Scripture-loving group of middle-aged men in church. In our on-going series on the Lord's Prayer we discussed "Give us this day our daily bread."

"Bread" refers to our physical needs. "Daily" means we must ask God for these needs on a daily basis; He can flood us with blessings, but He wants that we depend on Him daily, the same way the Hebrews got manna every day. Praying for food, shelter, and clothing is necessary.

A key point in Kuya Vance's teaching is his emphasis on the fact that God does choose to provide us more than what we need at any given time. This fact rings true for many of us who don't have to labor 24/7 just to put food on the table. We have more than enough, when we think about it. Praise be to God for His manifold blessings.
