First, I’d like to pray for God’s grace. By no means is my intention to boast or draw attention to myself or The Daily Powder Keg.
After church Sunday there was a surplus of fresh bread, and our pastor made this bread available to everyone at church. After everyone collected their fill, there was still bread remaining.
Then the Holy Spirit pressed my heart, and from that pressing a question arose.
What are people missing that they need?
Immediately the word “hope” came to mind.
In the world we live in surrounded by technological influences, it is easy to lose perspective. When you are fed negativity all day it is easy to lose hope. God has called Christians to be the “salt of the earth” (Matthew 5:13), while also cautioning us to not lose our “saltiness”. This is God urging Christians to be an example for the world. Out of this, The Bread Project was born.
The Bread Project is using a gift from the heart (bread) as an extension of God’s love. Only through God’s love can people’s hope in humanity be instilled. However, “man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God”. This has been dually confirmed in the New and Old Testament (Deuteronomy 8:3; Luke 4:4), therefore; with each loaf of bread there is a scripture to chew on also.
The best aspect of The Bread Project is that there is no rhyme or reason as to execution. We are not looking to reach a particular income level, neighborhood, race, religion, or other cultural dividers. There is no set time or date, because all need God. All need love. All need faith. All need hope, and they’re needed all the time.
