Anything beyond daily bread is greed

Everyday humans work to earn their daily bread, some earn it with hard work, and some steal it from others.

Anything beyond daily bread is greed

Give us this day our daily bread.” Matt 6:11. We know that there are three basic needs of human beings i.e. food, shelter and clothing. All of us know that food is the prior need of human beings.

Everyday humans work to earn their daily bread, some earn it with hard work, and some steal it from others. St. Paul in his Second Letter to the Thessalonians says, “Anyone unwilling to work should not eat” (3:11).

In today’s first reading we hear that St. Paul had every right to ask for his needs from the Corinthians but on the contrary he works hard to earn his daily bread.

Thus, he presents a true example to be the follower of Jesus. Work and prayer have to go hand in hand. The “Our Father” is the most universal prayer which can be recited by followers of any religion.

It contains seven petitions. The first three are addressed to God and four are about humans’ needs: physical, relational, mental and spiritual.

In this prayer we affirm our relationship with God and people around us. Therefore, let us be aware of the needs of our fellow brethren.  -- Bro. Sandeep Tirkey
