AN INTERPRETATION OF THE LORD’S PRAYER part 6APublished January 21, 2018
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD
As the Children of a loving Heavenly Father we can expect to be provided for and all our needs met. Just as human children look to their human parents to supply their needs, we should look to God with an understanding faith, that he will meet ours.
Here Jesus teaches and reminds His hearers that it is the Will of God that we lead healthy and happy lives, free of fears. Our most persistent fears are of Lack, Loss, and Limitation! These fears encompass all facets of life and undermine our trust in God. Our Divine Father knows all of our material needs, and these are all considered “Bread”. Our daily “Bread” is everything required for us to enjoy healthy and happy lives free of fear!
We are blessed with the Lord’s bounty, but we must claim it as His Children, for us to grow in Wisdom and develop as whole human beings. We do this when we recognize that He is the Source from which All blessings flow! God is the Fountainhead of All Good, including the Bread of life. There is only one Source, but there are many tributaries, rivers, streams, and channels. Understanding this Principle of Divine Law sustains our faith when one stream of supply slows or dries up altogether.
