180 Days of Boasting about God โ€“ Day 48

I’ve been saying the Lord’s Prayer all along but never fully understand “give us this day our daily bread”. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I know it’s a request for daily provisions, including the Word of God, for sustenance. However, it’s more than requesting provisions.

In Exodus, the Israelites got the manna from heaven every morning. After a while, they got dissatisfied. They wanted fish like they got when they were captives in Egypt. God sent fish. But with that greed, they started to die.

Therefore, give us this day our daily bread is also a request for what God chooses to provide and not what we desire out of discontentment. In other words, give us the manna and not the fish.
