"Give us this day our daily bread." 1

"Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections."2

What did they—they who heard the Master—know of bread?I think they knew the work in it.Gathering, mixing, kneading, forming, baking—not an easy     job. And every day,Since only daily bread is never stale.Fresh and sweet and new it comes,The fragrance always wonderful.

So when our Master taught them "Give us . . ." in his prayerWhat could they think? A gift of bread, NO WORK?This truth/bread given free to us each day?Can this be true, no need for men to EARN their bread,Just open arms?
