TITLE: Daily Breadbasket

When we say the Lord's prayer, we ask God to "give us our daily bread". Jesus taught us to pray thus. Not "give us our annual bread" nor even "give us enough bread for this week" but, "give us our DAILY bread". God wants us to come to him daily, so that we may enjoy each other's fellowship. Also, in many parables, and even the story of how He provided mana for His people, God warns us against hoarding. Hoarding isn't trusting. "Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven where moth and rust does not corrupt."
Another interesting thing to notice is that Jesus never taught us to pray that God would "give us our daily bread and honey". If we could learn to be satisfied with our basic needs and allow God to choose the sauce, what a happy surprise each extra blessing would be!
This week, the Lord blessed me with a new insight on the phrase, "give us...our daily bread". Jesus, when he had finished talking to the Samaritan woman at the well, told his disciples, "My bread is to do the will of my Father".
Our first thought, when we speak of daily bread, is our physical needs. Our second thought might be our spiritual encouragement, maybe time spent in studying the word.
But Jesus said that his spiritual food is to DO the will of the Father. Reading God's word and praying availeth some, dear friends, but DOING God's will is the real food of our spirit! "Be ye doers of the word and not hearers only".
When we have an opportunity to serve God, whether it be by witnessing His salvation to someone, meeting their physical needs or offering comfort that glorifies God, it is as if God is passing us the Bread Basket. Those opportunities are your Daily Bread! If we pass up an opportunity to do God's will, we are passing up our meal! Who knows, dear friends, when that basket may be passed our way again. We must eat our spiritual food every time the Bread Basket is passed in order to keep our spirit strong and to grow spiritually.
When the Lord passes you the bread basket today, may you eat hearty and ask for seconds! His basket is always overflowing!
