For the past month we have tried to focus more on Jesus Christ and serve as He served. There has been a wonderful initiative called #LightTheWorld that encourages people to serve each day in simple ways. We haven’t done everything every day but we have done some things.
Jesus taught: “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat.” —Matthew 25:35
A person can experience spiritual hunger as well as physical hunger. As Jesus did, we can offer people both kinds of nourishment. Bethlehem means “House of Bread.” Pretty interesting when you realize that later in His life Jesus Christ would proclaim, “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger;” (John 6:35)
Jesus broke bread with sinners and publicans, sharing a meal at their table. Bread, or a variation of it, is a staple in all cultures of the world. It’s a reminder to all of God’s children, wherever they are, to look to His Son to find spiritual nourishment.
Our family baked 30 loaves of bread to share with other families in our community.
