Man shall not live by bread alone

"Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes from the mouth of God."

I love bread. I grew up on a street that had an Italian bakery that made the most amazing bread. On Sundays my dad would send one of us there to buy a dozen warm dinner rolls - my mouth waters at that memory. This is the context that I have when I think about bread. Consider this response to the word of God from Psalm 119:
More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.
Sometimes I think that we are what we love and desire. As I said before, I love bread.. my waistline shows it.. yet I am not sure that I love God's bread as much. My love of bread has caused me to sometimes eat bread too much.. yet I am not sure that I am fat on spiritual bread.. honestly, my mouth does not water for it like it does for that stuffed cooked in ovens.

Lord, cause my mouth to water for your word.

  1. Well, Bob, another thing we have in common. Fresh, warm bread, real butter and raspberry jam...

    I too long to have that kind of desire for the Word of God, the Bread of Life!

    A Bread bowl of Clam Chowder on the San Francisco Pier 39 is another wonderful way to enjoy the Bread of the World.
