Our Daily Bread.

Luke 11:3 (NKJV): "Give us day by day our daily bread."

We need the energy to function as humans every day. This energy comes from our nutrients. More like a car needs to refuel every so often, as the tank empties, we also need to get nutrients to keep our bodies moving in performing the things we need to do.

We need nutrients for each part of our being. Remember we are spirits, with a soul and live inside a physical body. The physical bread (food) we eat feeds or fuels our body to function. Along with exercise, it helps in keeping our physical bodies healthy.

Physical food, however, is not the right fuel for our soul and our spirit. Our soul is sustained by the pictures it is able to conjure. The pictures give it direction, certainty, and purpose. The pictures come from the information we feed our minds with.

The first and foremost information we should feed our mind with is that which comes from the word of God. The word of God is the bread our soul and spirit feed on. As we read the word daily we see a picture of who God is, what He thinks about us, and how He wants us to relate with Him.

What we read and what we see from the word of God daily keeps our soul and spirit strong and healthy.

Memory Verse: Matthew 4:4 (NKJV): "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.’ ”"
