“Give us today our daily bread.”
The opening stanza of the Epistle Reflection that accompanies our reflection this morning is taken from 2 Corinthians 9:6-7. St. Paul is writing concerning a special collection that is being taken for other Christians, and he seems to want to make sure that everything is in order, for it, before he arrives so that it doesn’t take up any of his time while present. His reminder to the Corinthians, is about their attitude toward material wealth and possessions. Their attitude, in giving to the Church, should be one that is familiar to our lips: All things come of Thee, O Lord, and of Thine own have we given Thee.
Our meditation this morning could be around God’s provision for His people, as He provides for our needs. Our Father, give us today our daily bread.
