My other thought Sunday was about daily bread. Maybe I haven’t mentioned this here yet, but I’m kind of into it. Eating and drinking, yes, cooking and preparing, yes, but also the concept and importance of it as a gift from God. And, it’s daily! That’s significant, yet too often overlooked or underappreciated. Anyway, you know how the Israelites could have no leftovers from the Passover? It’s a demonstration of a day’s bread, built on the promise that God must Himself provide for the future meals!!
Maybe I’m not writing that clearly enough, but my thinking has taken off, scattering in many directions now. 🙂 For instance, could we have a Bible study on daily bread? It could cover some great Bible passages and offer some under-utilized biblical comfort. We could get into the Hebrew and Greek terms and reference passages, and we could delve into Luther’s explanation of its broad spectrum.
What do you think? Catchy? Helpful? Overly narrow?
Maybe you’d like to try your hand at this idea. If so, just let me know. My writing time’s pretty scattered these days and, frankly, my two-year old twinnies aren’t get calmer any time soon! Still, maybe I’d be well-suited to it.
Personally, I want to work on keeping my language audience friendly, and I want to stop being so intense. I may have writing on the backburner for a while, but I still want my ideas percolating and simmering there! Plus, I need to see how my random bits of expertise can fit into practical resources to see how I can help. Ya know?
What would you include? Maybe . . .
- Intro: Daily stressors & daily promises
- Hebrew & Greek words
- Feeding of the Masses
- Body and Soul Care
- Yeast of the Pharisees (Maybe even yeast in general in a text box)
- The Lord’s Prayer
- Luther on the Lord’s Prayer
- Conclusions: Remembering daily promises/ God as source of our every good
The way I see it, it would explore the concept and themes with addressing textual support.
