"Give us this day our daily bread." An appropriate petition for the Israelites wandering in the wilderness hungry for manna during their 40-year exodus, but what does it mean for society today? The majority of households in the U.S. today (about 75%) live above the poverty level and do not experience food insecurity. As a nation of abundance and far removed from a third world status, what does it mean for us today to pray "give us this day our daily bread"? Today’s message from Pastor Tony Minear, Ph.D. explores this idea and how our nation has bought into a scarcity mindset. Listen and discover the original Greek meaning and order of the text for this line of The Lord’s Prayer. It’s not what you might think. When we frame our lives from a space of scarcity, we miss the point entirely and our neighbors become our competitors. Let’s reframe it as having the right portion, and it will always be enough.
