Daily Bread

In Biblical times, bread is thought to be understanding and substance and in the Old Testament, it talks of the manna falling daily, which was a type of bread.  It could not be stored up and saved but had to be used daily.  This way  we are kept from regret of the past and fear of the future.  Exodus 16:15, 16, 19 states, ” Moses said to them, ‘it is the bread the Lord has given you to eat.’  This is what the Lord has commanded: ‘Each one is to gather as much as he needs.’…No one is to keep any of it until morning.”

As we learn to lean more on God and stay in the presence, our every human need is met by Divine Love.

The Veil Destroyed

II Corinthians 3:15,16 reads, “Even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.  Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.”

In my study today, the “veil” represents “close-mindedness” and I recognize this sometimes in my thoughts and judgments.  The only way this veil is destroyed is when my heart is softened and filled with humility, love, and gratitude.  As I study and pray, this is my starting point as I turn to God.
