The poet wrote, "Back of the loaf is the snowy flour, and back of the flour, the mill. And back of the mill is the field of wheat, the rain, and the Father’s will."
Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” Are you trusting God for daily bread? Do you acknowledge Him as your ultimate source or do you depend on something else like your bank account or pension fund?
Recently, I heard an advertisement for a food storage company that boasted of “delicious and hearty gourmet meals that are ready to use,” and how they have a shelf life of up to twenty-five years. Twenty-five years? To pray “give us this day our daily bread” might seem strange to people who plan their meals twenty-five years in advance.
