"BREAD ENOUGH AND TO SPARE"

When the prodigal son was reduced to an impoverished state because of his extravagance, he cried out (Luke 15:17), "How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!" In this story we have an illustration of repentance brought about through self-imposed suffering.

Although the prodigal's thought may have been resting upon the bread in his father's house, the illustration in its spiritual sense points clearly to the fact that in God's kingdom there is always "bread enough and to spare." God's store of spiritual good is never in short supply, nor is it capable of depletion. Substance is imperishable, unconsumable, satisfying, complete, abundant.
