Bread for a day

Feed us today if you must...spare some change to help us? Give us a loaf of bread for today, yes it would be nice? But, why not instead teach us to grow our very own wheat? Teach us instead how we could harvest it ourselves...why not instead teach us how to bake our own bread? Yes, instead of the bread you gave us for one day, instead if you teach us how to do these things we will feed ourselves.

    excellent! The quote comes to mind while reading reads "Give a man a fish he'll eat for a day, teach the man how to fish he'll never go hungry".
