Why Not Accept The Bread?

Share this


A young man was given an all inclusive scholarship to study overseas by a successful elderly man. He became prosperous after a few years while still abroad, and decided to appreciate his sponsor. Those were the days when there was no money transfer system and mail delivery system back in his home country was bedeviled with serious trust issues such that any monetary mail you send would not get to the destination. The man then developed an idea. He contacted an acquaintance who planned to journey to his home country soon. He got a big loaf of bread, dissected it and stuffed it with hard currencies amounting to a huge sum in local currency equivalent. He wrapped it well and sent it through the traveling acquaintance.

The acquaintance located the given address and of course the sponsor. He handed over the package with a statement that the token of appreciation was from the lad he sponsored few years ago. On un-wrapping it and discovering it’s a loaf, the man was disgusted and enraged with an incredible impetuosity. He felt insulted that all the lad could send in appreciation was just a loaf of bread! Hence, he rejected it. The acquaintance went away with the loaf. Since he didn’t plan traveling overseas soon and in order to prevent wastage, he decided to take the bread himself. When he broke off a piece for a bite, he could not believe his eyes. Piece after piece, he discovered the fortune. What did he do? He took it as a blessing and kept it to himself.

Weeks later, the young man had expected his sponsor to send some words of appreciation for the money, but nothing like that came forth. ‘Well’, he thought, ‘may be the money was insignificant.’

He sent a bigger loaf in the same manner, stuffed with a larger sum of money. The elderly man back in his home country, on the receipt the ‘ordinary bread’ was outrageously annoyed. In a similar manner, the mail agent took the package home and discovered the fortune. This time, the mail agent on returning to his overseas base told the sender of the presupposed exhilaration with which the sponsor accepted the gift. Expectation of gratitude heightened in the young man’s emotion, but no message of sort came forth.

The young man in a serious bewilderment decided to journey back to his home country after a few years. He was shocked to see his sponsor on the sick bed, languishing in lack and in a state best described as ‘too late!’

During their conversation, the elderly man admitted to haven thought that the packages were ordinary loaves, and rejected them out of disappointment. The young man retorts, ‘how could I have sent an ordinary loaf?’. ‘Even, if it was’, he continues, ‘shouldn’t you have considered it?’. ‘…now it’s too late!’

Jesus is the Bread of life! Though His presentation seems too simple, in Him lies the best treasure that man could ever possess. So, why not accept Him now, cos tomorrow may be too late?

Jesus says, "I am the bread of life…I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever…" (John 6:48,52).

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16).

If you have made up your mind to accept ‘THE BREAD’ which is Jesus Christ, consider this scripture – "For with the heart, one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Roman 10:10).

Then pray like this –

Thank you Jesus for dying for me
I believe in you and I confess I am a sinner
Please forgive me and save my soul
I receive you into my heart as my Lord and Saviour
Thank you for saving my soul.

If you have prayed those words sincerely, then you are welcome into the family of God. Find a bible believing church and enjoy your new life in Christ.
