Everyone is hungry – we’re all looking for bread; however, the problem isn’t that we’re hungry – the problem is with the type of bread we eat. Are we eating the bread of loneliness, regret, selfishness – or accepting the living bread that is Jesus – offering himself in all of our relationships?
Why should we settle for recreating ourselves with one more possession, hope, ambition? All the time, Jesus is dying to give us a new life – one we can’t create for ourselves. Can we not instead find Jesus in the darkness of our lives – and in the night time wake anew to a new life with Christ?
