May 17, 2017 – Bread and Debt

Daily Challenges

What does “Bread” mean?

Is it just referencing food?

By the way, have we eaten today?
Have we been grateful for the food we did have today?

The dictionary defines bread as not only food, but money as well.

It’s not easy to forgive our debtors, nor is it easy to ask forgiveness from those we may
owe.

Not having any ‘bread’ can hang heavy on our shoulders, regardless of which kind it is.

What Else Can We Do?

We can try to remember that not everyone in this world will eat today.

And we can try to realize how fortunate we are if we do.

We can try to find a way to help those without today.
We could give to an organization that feeds those in need or volunteer at one to lend a helping hand.

We can try to pay a little something on our debts to ease the load, both ways.

We can remember that the Good Lord is there for us and He will carry us through.

The Bible Says

Matthew 6:11-12
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Deuteronomy 8:3
So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.

2 Kings 4:7
Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt; and you and your sons live on the rest.”

Romans 13:8
Owe no one anything except to love one another for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.

Bible Trivia: Where did manna come from? (See Psalm 78:24) “Had rained down manna on them to eat, and given them of the bread of heaven.”

Bible Verse: Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. Romans 4:4
