“Give us this day our daily bread” (Matt. 6:11). Eating food is a spiritual occasion, an opportunity to renew deeper significance for our lives. The Torah states, “When you eat and are satisfied, bless the LORD your God for the good” (Deut. 8:10). Giving thanks sanctifies our experience; it is not just a “polite” thing to do but is at the very heart of leading a Torah-true life... The daily bread of God is what sustains and nourishes our way through this world; it is the bread of hope, the bread of healing, the bread of love. Therefore dirshuni yichyu: "Seek God and live!" (Amos 5:4). The Lord gives us daily bread (לֶחֶם חֻקֵּנוּ) so that we return to Him over and over in our need. God wants us to depend on Him, to keep asking, seeking, knocking.... Storing up manna leads to rottenness because faith is always a present concern. God's truth is not a static thing (like a noun), but rather is alive, purposive, and full of action (like a verb). We keep trusting; we keep walking; we keep pressing on, etc. Therefore Yeshua says, "Follow me; take my yoke upon you, and you will learn." "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes; so it is everyone who is born of the Spirit" (John 3:8).
