Is man made of bread?

Tell me if a father was a piece of bread and his children had to eat 

of him in order to live and grow daily, yet the father who was made 

of bread lacked in the needed nutrients and substance for them live 

off of or to survive off of, then surely has he not then condemned 

them to an almost certain death? I ask that all men stop being that 

type of bread and become the bread of life. Men you need to enrich 

your daughters and sons, so that they too will become breads of life 

and not the bread of death. Man is made of bread and to each of his 

children he is their daily source of knowledge, respect, caring, hope 

and love of life, which in turn produce a new loaf of bread to be eaten 

by the next generation. All of us need to become that bread of life in 

our homes and throughout our daily lives for our children and the world.
