I love bread! I always have. My mother could and would tell you that my favorite part of a meal is bread. My favorite restaurants have good bread. I love bread!
A few months ago I saw a pin on pinterest (that I cannot seem to find again) that said, “The bible should be your bread, not dessert.”
I don’t know about you, but I eat bread in some form or another multiple times a day. I might eat a small dessert (cookie) once a day, but I only eat big, heavy desserts on special occasions.
I want my bible, my prayer life, my walk with God to be a daily part of my life. I want it to be my bread, not my dessert.
John 6:35 says, “Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.'”
I hope that you have or will make your bible, and your relationship with God your bread.
The lesson above was part of my introduction to the women’s ministry fellowship at my house a few weeks ago. I made homemade banana and pumpkin breads for us to snack on. We had a wonderful time talking with one another, but let me tell you, inviting women over to my five room house was hard work. It is a tiny house and needed a lot of cleaning (because I had slacked off for awhile). I added some new fall decorations for the fellowship also.
The R was 50% off at Hobby Lobby. I added some raffia and a fall floral piece with a burlap bow. I hung it on an old barn door my husband found in a pasture somewhere. The pumpkin with flowers is a cheap $1 pumpkin from Target (used for trick or treating normally) spray painted ivory with a $3 mum from Home Depot in it (black potting container and all is inside of the pumpkin).
The house looked great and I was proud to show it off to the ladies of Atco Baptist Church.
