The Bread of Life
“I am the bread of life” John 6:35a
Do you love the smell of bread baking? I love making homemade bread. Especially whole wheat bread made from freshly milled flour. Did you know that freshly milled whole wheat flour has 40 of the 44 known vitamins and minerals that our body needs for good health? It is no wonder that Jesus continually referred to himself as the “Bread of Life.” It is amazing how much better we feel when we are eating foods that are good for us and give us the nutrition that our body needs to work as God created.
Does God really care about our physical health just as he does our spiritual health? 1 Corinthians 10:31 tells us, “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for God’s glory.” So in other words, yes. God tell us to let everything that we do glorify Him, including what we put into our bodies. When we are physically unhealthy, it robs us of the energy to be able to do the things that God has called us to do.
Lord, help me glorify you in everything I do. Today, give me the strength to make good food choices and eat the things that you created for food to help keep me physically healthy.
