Daily Bread

We all need our daily food to function well in life. But sometimes I think I need my spiritual food even more.  No wonder we pray, ‘give us this day our daily bread’ in the Lord’s Prayer.

I really need to pray this often, especially during this busy Christmas season.

Interestingly the city named Bethlehem also reminds me of spiritual food.  This is because Bethlehem in Hebrew literally means ‘House of Bread.’

I find it fascinating that Jesus was born in the ‘house of bread’ and he referred to himself as the bread of life:

Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; he who comes to me will not hunger and he who believes in me will not thirst. (John 6:35 NASB)

As I take the time to read and meditate on God’s word, I know it will help me keep my focus . He truly is the bread of life and my daily bread. It is really Him I hunger for this Christmas.

May He fill all of us to the full during this beautiful season.  Merry Christmas everyone!
