Everyday Essentials?

jaffa cakes everyday essentialsI was eating a Jaffa Cake when I noticed that on the packet that it said ‘everyday essentials’.

There it is, living proof that you need a jaffa cake (actually it says 12) everyday :).

This made me think about when Jesus said that

People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. (Matthew 4.4)

Would he have said today that we don’t live by jaffa cakes alone?

Bread was the staple diet in Jesus’ time and his point was simple. Bread helps you to survive physically, but we don’t live juts by surviving.

Real life involves reading and obeying God’s word which we found in the Bible.

What everyday essentials are you having today?

Hi, my name is Graeme and I’m married to a very patient wife. We have 4 children, 2 rabbits, a terrapin (and not a lot of peace and quiet!). I’m a Regional Minister for the Eastern Baptist Association in the UK (the views expressed in this blog are my own) and I am especially interested in making Church accessible to people who have no church background and also in how we disciple people in order to equip them to live out their faith in the 21st Century.
