Our daily bread - Page 2


For our bodies

The things we need for our bodies include, not only food, but also clothes and shelter.  Now these things have to be paid for, and so this is also a prayer that we may have work so that we may be able to earn the money to pay for them.  God expects us all to work for our living if we can, if there is work available and we are fit enough to work.  Although, as Jesus has told us, God feeds the birds, yet for all that they have to look for food and peck it up.  So God’s will is that, if we can, we should do some useful work – studying in College, or perhaps working somewhere such as an office or a shop or a hospital; or it may be the work of looking after the family at home.
