Think Through the Gospel of Matthew Day 23 - One Day at a Time
Matthew 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread.
Because of all of the laws regarding food safety, you can’t take food allotted to be served on any given day and distribute what is unused. There was a man who owns a restaurant and at the end of business each day, they pack up their unused food and take it immediately to a shelter, staying within the confines of the legal time period given by the laws, and share with others. They’d rather share the food with the homeless than discard it in a trash can.
"Give us this day our daily bread” does not just imply a selfish kind of request. It also involves being concerned about the needs of others. This verse says, “Give us.” It raises the question of our personal need and the needs of others.
1 ARE YOU MORE FOCUSED ON TOMORROW THAN YOU ARE TODAY?
2. DO YOU THINK OF OTHERS AS MUCH AS YOU DO YOURSELF?
