Working for Food

Food is essential for survival.Without food we will all die.

Some of us live on bread; others on rice and beans. They are our basic needs and we can't live and progress without them.

For the rich and well off, they may not be a necessary part of the diet. But for the majority poor, they are the essential diet.

The crowd of  poor in Jesus' time sought for more food after Jesus had performed the miracle of multiplying loaves of bread (John 6:11, 26). 

Jesus told them that He was "the true bread from heaven." The people thought about literal daily bread. But Jesus was talking about daily spiritual needs that could bring them everlasting satisfaction.

Physical food satisfies the hunger of the body. Only spiritual bread can satisfy the hunger of the soul.

"Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.” (John 6:27)
