Daily Verse

November 18 - The Bread of Life

"But He answered and said, 'It is written, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God."'" - Matthew 4:4

We all know that living in the United States of America or any 1 world country means that you are never too far from food. There are organizations dedicated to providing the homeless with food and shelter. There are places mothers and children can go for milk and cheese. And for the rest of us there is a grocery store on almost every street corner. We can choose from dine in or fast food. So how can we fully understand what Jesus is talking about when he says that we do not "live by bread alone"? Does He mean to say that we must live on His word as we do on food? Jesus was confronting the ever constant complaint and desire of the disciples: food and clothing. Where were they going to get their next meal and what were they going to wear? That is still the same concern for most people. They wonder where they are going to work, or where they are going to eat, or where they are going to live. Instead of leaving that in God's hands as the Scriptures say over and over again, we tend to be more focused on food and work than on Jesus and His word. It doesn't have to be that way, it only usually is that way because we give food, clothes and our jobs more attention than they deserve. Let us eat in peace and dress modestly, but let us stop focusing so much on where we are going to live or what we are going to wear or what we are going to eat. Let us focus more on what we are going to study today in God's word.
