Advent 2023: Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread by Trustee Marie Day


"And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having

enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work."

2 Corinthians 9:8 NRSVUE

Fifteenth Day After Christmas

It is a human tendency to try to safeguard the future. We feel more in control if we think we

can guarantee that we will have everything we need down the road. There is nothing wrong

with insurance policies or savings accounts, but ultimately, none of us can control what the

future holds.

In Jesus’ prayer, He speaks of “daily bread,” not weekly, not monthly, and not yearly. God

sent the Israelites manna to collect each morning. Food spoiled when they tried to stockpile it

for the next day. God promises to give us exactly what we need for the day ahead. Day by

day, He meets our needs for physical and spiritual food. God wants us to depend only on

Him, each day of our lives, believing that He will give us exactly what we need. That is what

it means to walk by faith.

Prayer: You make me sufficient Lord, You, give me enough of everything I need-to carry out Your will. Truth be told, You, often supply much more than I need. These blessings are wonderful surprises that I do not want to take for granted. Show me ways that I can share Your blessings with others. You are a good giver, Lord. Thank You. Amen.

We seek, listen and perceive the presence of God in words of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.

We invite you to join us in meditation, reflection, prayer and spiritual disciplines throughout the season of Advent and beyond.
