11-21-17 Sermon - Thankful for Daily Bread


In Luther's Small Catechism he reminds us that we ask in the Lord's Prayer, "Give us this day our daily bread" so that we realize where our daily bread comes from and that we receive the same with thanks. Interestingly, "faith" is nearly synonymous with the giving of thanks to God, because in humility we look to God as the source of every good gift, including the forgiveness of sins and the bread of Life onto life eternal. So sincere gratitude is indeed one of the truest signs of a living and active faith.
