The House of Bread

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. Luke 2:15

School was called off Friday after we received a nice three-ply blanket of ice, sleet and snow. So Lynn made bread, homemade, warm, buttery, with strawberry jam on top. Wow, taste bud heaven! I love bread, how about you?

It is said that bread is the staff of life. As rice is to the Orient, beans and rice to Mexico, so bread is to us. And so it was the staple to Israel so long ago. Bread was considered a necessity, a “gotta have it.” Not only that, but it tastes good!

In His ministry, Jesus let it be known that, among other things, He is the Bread of life. He was saying that He is a need, yea, the greatest need in all our lives. How fitting then that this Bread of life was born in Bethlehem, of all cities, the “house of bread”?

O taste and see that the Lord is good.
