“Give us each day our daily bread.” Luke 11:3

Dear Jesus, you did not accumulate any great earthly wealth.  And you lived in a very tumultuous economic time.  Yet, we never once saw you worry and fret over your provisions.  Instead, you focused on the needs of others, even our greatest need that would cost you the greatest price.  While here you taught us to pray, "Give us this day our daily bread."  What a volume of words!  Daily, not even enough for two days.  I see how you want me to live by teaching me to pray this way.  Daily!  God, take care of all my needs today and when you give me more than I need, pry my hands free from what I have so I will use it to meet other people's needs.  Make me like you!  AMEN 

"It's not what you take with you but what you leave behind, that equates value."
