Saturday, March 12, 2016 Our Daily Bread
Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Matthew 6:25
The first of five rhetorical questions that compare or contrast greater and lesser things. This was a typical teaching method of the rabbis.
Why do we pray to God for daily bread? Because Christ wants us to receive all our physical blessings with thanksgiving. 
Mercifully hear our prayers, O Lord, and spare all those who confess their sins to you; that those whose consciences are accuse by sin may by your merciful pardon be absolved; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
