A piece of Bread will give you a peace of mind

Give us this day our daily bread Mathew 6:11(KJV)

The lawn outside the US Capitol is covered with empty shoes to represent the 7,000 children killed by the gun violence since the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School.

By Bobby R. Henry, Sr.

With everything that is going on in our country, never mind the rest of the world we need a moment to exhale.

On an average day’s news coverage it can easily amount to a year’s worth of the country’s worst news stories. This does not include the occurrences that go uncovered. If those were included I would seriously consider joining Chicken Little in her hellacious ranting about the impossible; “the sky falling”.

Come to think about it, that can be an excellent metaphor to compare what appears to be a consensus of a few confused and disillusion people.

Yes, things are troubling but, there is nothing new under the sun even though it’s a bit overwhelming.

From the White House to our School houses, things are corrupting and bursting at the seams. People are being killed physically, mentally and emotionally; which can lead to a spiritual death- one that I believe is the worst kind of death.

Our elections, and it doesn’t matter if they are local, state or national are plagued with deceit. Individuals from all ends of the spectrum start out with good intentions.

Yet, somewhere in between as their term continues, if they are not true to the commitment of serving for the people, their rolls switch; they convince the people to serve them but, the sickening aspect of this scenario is; they believe that the should be served.

They suffer from the “Saul Complex”. They should not have accepted the title because their motives were not pure.

So many of us are not playing with pure motives therefore, we are subjected to “not so cool stuff”.

We need to take a moment to really enjoy and share our ‘daily Bread’ to allow us to remember how human we are.

“Dear God in the name of Jesus Please allow me to share the daily Bread You have given me for Peace with those in need. In Jesus name. Amen.”
