Some gets it’s ‘replica’ from the sweet shop, the grocery store, the small to medium size supermarket. It’s affordable to the rich and slightly costly for the poor, the old and the young, those considered clever and those that were marginalized, men from the glass house living in a bay window and those from the grass root struggling for their next meal, men assumed to be out of size or within size, out of shape or in shape, it’s needed by most if not all even the weight watchers still have a little bit of it.
A product well known for its necessity to all, even a nursing mother who has just stop breastfeeding her infant child could hardly wait to start him up with a taste of bread, to address the cry of an hungry baby whose voice is loud but his speech is still forming and his language is only known to him but not understood by the loving, passionate mother who is unsure of what and how to meet her baby’s growing appetite for food. She can only try but a piece of soft bread seems to do the trick. It is a global product and everyone knows where to get one, the world needed it, bread is on high demand around the world hence its returns on investment spans in billions of revenues to the bakery company. Statistics confirmed that bread production revenue (NAICS 3118) in the United States from 2009 to 2014 ranges from $38.81billion/2009 to $39billion in 2014.
It is apparent that bread does not just appear on the shop window, the farmer sows the seed of wheat but God rains on the earth and causes the sun to shine making the wheat to bud and flourish, such that it yields seed to the sower for harvest of wheat grains that are then milled into different type of flours. God is the provider of seed to the sower and bread to the eater (2 Cor 9:10, Isa 5:10).
Flour in the hand of the baker becomes the bread that gratifies the appetite of the eater, who is the end consumer of the product, from season to season, day to day, time and time again; eaters of bread always buy on every visit to the supermarket. As the desire for bread across the globe continue to increase in the lifetime of her consumer, the proceeds of man’s labor, the rewards on trade and return on investment (money) are spent to purchase bread that does not have the capacity for eternal sustenance or satisfaction to the eater neither has it the ability to keep men alive. Why, because man is yet to partake of the bread of life that is eternal and give everlasting life such that those who partake of it never dies (Joh 6:31-49).
Everyone needs it; anyone can get it and have it without money. Here is the Question? Do you want it? it is free for all, only believe!
- “I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh. Do you believe this?” [Joh 11:25-26 NIV]
“Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread, which comes down out of heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.” [Joh 6:47-51 NIV]
