Shade Tree Wisdom 6/30/15
When the disciples asked, “Lord, teach us to ray”, Jesus included food for the body as well as the soul when he included this petition, “Give us this day our daily bread”.
Jesus knew well the body needs sustenance to remain live and go on being among the living.
It’s important, yet we learn to take our daily food sort of for granted, don’t we. The table is always set and food lies there before us. An often we even grouse because we don’t like the fare offered.
And yet, Jesus teaches us to ask for “daily Bread”, and we do well to give thanks for it. I wonder how many remember to bow their heads in the dining hall where we now take our meals.
“Let each this lesson learn with care,
And all the household well shall fare.”
