Eat salt together and you'll be friends for life. Break bread together and you're safe.
Bread is the most popular food.
Christians in Jordan will yell at each other and then sit down and break bread.

The bread of God is the One who comes down from heaven. He gives life to the world."
John 6:33 NIRV
Bread exists for a purpose. Nothing exists by itself. There is a purpose for everything.
All over the world the good news is bearing fruit and growing. It has been doing that among you since the day you heard it. That is when you understood God's grace in all its truth.
Colossians 1:6 NIRV
Who likes the crunchy outside of the loaf of bread or the cherry inside?
Jesus multiplied the bread.
What I'm about to tell you is true. Everyone who believes has life forever. "I am the bread of life. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Everyone who eats some of this bread will live forever. The bread is my body. I will give it for the life of the world."
John 6:47-48, 51 NIRV
Jesus is the head of life. Do we walk away from Jesus when things don't go well? Wake up. There is a bigger picture.
People followed Jesus because they wanted to see more signs. Not to believe in Jesus. He was considered a prophet. They thought he was Moses and would keep feeding them. They wanted him to become their king.
Too often we think Jesus should give us whatever we need.
Communion to share the bread. Why do you want Jesus?
Jesus is testing our
Spirit of scarcity
The Word became a human being. He made his home with us. We have seen his glory. It is the glory of the one and only Son. He came from the Father. And he was full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NIRV
