Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

—Matthew 4:4

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Like Esau, we get so diverted by the mundane things of life and the growling of our bellies, we forget the longer range view of things. God’s Word, his written Word the Bible, his demonstrated Word in Jesus, and his proclaimed Word in the Gospel are what can sustain us eternally. This is the living bread we seek.

My Prayer…

True and Faithful God, through your Holy Spirit create in me a hunger for your Word that is much more necessary for my life than my hunger for food. I confess that at times I have been distracted by the mundane things of life and have not sought your Word and have not nourished my soul as fully as I could. Please forgive me as I re-commit myself to be more attentive to your leading and your truth through your Word and by your Spirit. In the name Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
