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.
