What does our Lord Jesus Christ teach us with the words “our bread”?

Share |

By using the words “our bread” our Lord Christ teaches us to ask for bread that comes to us in a manner that is in accord with His will. At the same time He teaches us that we are not to desire bread, which does not belong to us. He also teaches us to remember those neighbors of our who are in need.

2 Thess. 3:10-12: If any would not work, neither should he eat... Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

Eph. 4:28: Let him that stole, steal no more; but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
