John 6:33 For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34 They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.”
I rarely eat plain white bread. I prefer bread with character and texture, with seeds or herbs, yielding a bold flavor. For life rarely comes sifted and bleached, but comes with surprising flavors and textures showing the diversity of God’s creation.
Gracious God, help us every day to savor the rich, full-bodied flavor of life, so we might recognize you in all that we receive. Amen!
