Don't Let the Bread Get Stale
Don’t let the bread get stale came about when I had this huge crush on my lil sweetheart at work. I began putting snacks in his desk, basically things I know he likes. Well, I noticed the snacks were low, but I was being lazy and didn’t go to the store. One day at home, the bread got stale, which meant now I had to go to the store. I finally went to Walmart, the snacks were only $10.00, but I ended up spending $95.00.
A couple of days later a different meaning of don’t let the bread get stale came about. At Jayda’s book signing everyone shared a little something about themselves. One woman spoke on how she keeps something sexy on for her man and has different ways to keep the spice in their marriage. At the time she was speaking, she was big pregnant! She was not trying to have no boring moments in her relationship. So to me, keeping that spice was her way of not letting the bread get stale.
By the end of the week, I had begun reading an “Our Daily Bread” booklet. I read John 6 vs 32-35… For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world… Lord, give us this bread always. Jesus said, I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
I thought about how hungry I have been for the Lord seeking to know Him even more. But for the sinners, those who fall short and are lost from His word. The ones too busy, the back sliders or the ones who are angry with God. These people have let their spiritual bread get stale. Their storage is empty. I say to you, go to church, begin to fellowship again. Repent, release and God will restore.
As to how to not let the bread get stale is to stay prayed up, read the Bible, trust in the Lord with all your heart, learn and apply His word and you will soon begin to grow again spiritually.
I am asking God to continue to use me to help show someone the way and help fill their shelves with fresh bread. In Matthew 14 vs 16 it says, But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. YOU give them something to eat." So I am also asking, if you are a believer, make yourself available, not to do your will, but to do the will of God.
Do not turn your back on the lost, or the sinners. There are people out there who don't know to seek first the Kingdom of God.
Tweet a Bible verse, smile, uplift, be kind or encourage someone today. Jesus fed 5,000 with two fish and five loaves of bread. Just imagine how many you can help feed by just sharing His word.
