Bread of Life
Ask your kids how much bread they’ve eaten in the last few days. Remind them that hamburger buns, tortillas, pastries, etc., are all forms of bread. Talk about what would happen if we didn’t nourish our bodies with food. When Moses and the Israelites were wandering in the desert, God provided manna to keep them alive. Without this special source of food, they would have died.
Our physical bodies need food. In the same way, our spirits need nourishment to stay strong, too. Our spirits need something special. Just as God provided manna for His people’s physical needs, He also gave us Jesus, who is called the “Bread of Life,” because He is the only one who can satisfy our spiritual hunger.
John 6: 48-51
