Thank you for your wonderful insights. This is so well thought--out and expressed. I couldn't agree more about the importance of making sure we love the Savior not only because He can make us more comfortable and happy physically and temporally, but more importantly because of the love and power He has to bring us spiritual joy regardless of our physical or temporal contentment or discomfort.
This article reminded me of a lesson I have learnt from the COVID legislation changes to how we run church activities and classes around food. It became clear to me what an opportunity we had to focus on the true bread of life in our activity, instruction and classes. I noted the stress that some leaders felt when they couldn't pad out an activity or lesson with food. They didn't know how to connect, inspire and validate those in their care without food. My thought was, how wonderful. This situation will provide an opportunity of growth. However, that hope was short-lived when methods were used to try and re-introduce food into activity and classes as quick as possible. I look forward to the day when we can come together and be satisfied with the true Bread of Life and Living Water.
