Matthew 6:11- “Give us today our daily bread” Petition #4 – “Maintain our life” – We turn from asking that God’s reputation, rule and reign be upheld... both here and everywhere... to asking for God’s kindness be demonstrated in and for our lives. Bread is the staple of life. We ask for God’s grace to be demonstrated in meeting the basic needs of life. Where many of the world’s population goes to sleep with an empty stomach, this petition is a desperate reality. For those of us in America, it ought to be call to thanksgiving and compassion.
--> Am I truly thankful for God’s daily provision? Does our thanksgiving motivate our compassion?
