Jesus once said, “Man cannot live by bread alone.” (In actuality, he was a Rabbi, so we probably said that a couple of dozen times at least.)
Jesus was quoting the book of Deuteronomy when he said that. I am pretty sure he was referring to the fact that man needs God to truly live. I totally agree.
This week though, there are two things I would add to that list with bread: A wife and the internet.
Ashleigh has been crazy sick all week. She has been a real trooper, but let me tell you…parenting three, taking care of a sick adult, and trying to keep my work done for Fellowship has been a Rushmore.
On top of all that, the internet at the house has been spotty at best. It seems like every time I would get all four of them settled in for a 20 minute window to sleep (I wish) to work, the internet would be down.
So, not that I would give up bread, but if I was writing Deutoronomy I would have said, “Man Can Not Live By Bread, Wife, and the Internet Alone.” Those are really my three staples.
FYI – I prefer my bread nearly flat in a 14″ or so diameter with red sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and mushroom.
