Bread serves as the staff of life by filling hungry stomachs around the world, but the Bible declares we cannot live on bread alone. Although bread sustains physical life, we sometimes tend to put too much emphasis upon earthly bread. Life exists not only in physical terms but in spiritual and eternal aspects as well; physical bread cannot satisfy our deepest needs. St. Augustine, in the 4th century, said it so well: “O Lord, our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee.” “Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry’” (John 6:35a).
