    • Each of you go to a different room in the church building and

    • make a list of every thing in it.

    • Then next to each item, write down your answer to the next question (below)

    • How did this get here?


    Discussion reflection

    • The Lord’s Prayer

    • Give us today our daily bread.

    • Q. What is this?

    • A. In fact, God gives daily bread without our prayer, even to all evil people, but we ask in this prayer that God cause us to recognize what our daily bread is and to receive it with thanksgiving.

    • Q. What then does “daily bread” mean?

    • A.. Everything our bodies need such as food, drink, clothing, shoes, house, home, fields, livestock, money, property, an upright spouse, upright children, upright workers, upright and faithful rulers, good government, good weather, peace, health, decency, honor, good friends, faithful neighbors, and the like.

    Discussion & reflection:

    Discussion reflection1

    Matthew 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread,

    • John Calvin, 1558, These words remind us that, unless God feed us daily, the largest accumulation of the necessaries of life will be of no avail. Though we may have abundance of corn, and wine, and every thing else, unless they are watered by the secret blessing of God, they will suddenly vanish, or we will be deprived of the use of them, or they will lose their natural power to support us, so that we shall famish in the midst of plenty.

    • Write down a new list of everything you really, really, absolutely do need,

    • everything that makes your life possible.

    Discussion & reflection:

    Discussion reflection2

    • Luke 11:3 Give us each day our daily bread

    • Ireneaus of Lyons (c. 180) Now if any man set Luke aside, as one who did not know the truth, he will, [by so acting,] obviously reject that Gospel of which he claims to be a disciple.

    • What does it mean to take God for granted? Can you give a couple of examples?

    • Is there a consequence for not thanking God?

    Discussion & reflection:

    Discussion reflection3

    • Tertullian (c. 199) Since, however, the Lord, the Foreseer of human necessities, said separately, after delivering His Rule of Prayer, “Ask, and ye shall receive;” and since there are petitions which are made according to the circumstances of each individual; our additional wants have the right—after beginning with the legitimate and customary prayers as a foundation, as it were—of rearing an outer superstructure of petitions, yet with remembrance of the Master’s precepts.

    • Whenever we pray the Lord’s Prayer,

    • after we pray as we were taught, we may also include our particular needs second.

    • Write down a list of everything you need right now.

    Discussion & reflection:

    Discussion reflection4

    • Luke 12:22And he said to his disciples, "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. 23For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24 Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! 25And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 26If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?

    • Clement of Alexandria (c. 200)  And sufficiency is a condition which reaches its proper end without excess or defect. The mother of these is Justice, and their nurse “Independence;” and this is a condition which is satisfied with what is necessary, and by itself furnishes what contributes to the blessed life.

    • Put these words of Clement of Alexandria in your own words.

    Discussion & reflection:

    Discussion reflection5

    • Can we, by the power of the Holy Spirit, say (yes say it out loud three times.)

      • “I commit myself to simplicity,

      • to having only what I need,

      • to value

        • protecting my relationship with God

        • protecting my neighbor,

        • protecting the environment,

      • by living simply?”

      • Now, write down what it means.

    Discussion & reflection:

    Discussion reflection6

    • Luke 6: 24 "But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.

    • Chrysostom (354-407) Now Jesus calls mammon here “a master,” not because of its own nature but on account of the wretchedness of those who bow themselves beneath it…to have mammon for your master is already worse itself than any later punishment and enough retribution before the punishment for anyone trapped in it…more grievous, one falls away thereby from the highest blessing – to be God’s servant.

    • So what do you want? To be God’s servant?

    Discussion & reflection:

    Discussion reflection7

    • How much do you need (write down your answer to each):

      • Warm food?

      • Air conditioning?

      • A cell phone?

      • Internet?

      • Decent clothes?

      • Friends?

      • Sports?

      • Vacations?

      • Could you live like a monk, without all of the above? If not, why not???

    Discussion & reflection:

    Discussion reflection8

    • We pray, “Lord, give us this day our daily bread…”

    • Daily means what we need today.

    • Daily means what we need today.

    • Daily means what we need today.

    • God is generous giving what we need and more.

    • Are we generous in giving back to God? What are you giving back to God?
