Read: John 6:25-40
"Joel," Mom called. "Would you like to help make supper? We're having biscuits and gravy. I thought you might like to help make the biscuits."
"Sure," answered Joel as he walked into the kitchen. He finished rolling out the dough.
"This is a biscuit cutter," said Mom, showing him a round cutter. "Just press it onto the dough to make as many biscuits as you can."
Joel liked the way the cutter squished into the soft dough.
Mom put the biscuits onto a cookie sheet, but she didn't put it in the oven yet. "We're also going to make croutons," she said. "You know, those crispy bread things that go on our salad?" She gave him some slices of dry bread, then showed him how to brush melted butter on both sides. Joel brushed the butter on, but not without dripping some on the counter.
"You're doing a good job, Joel," Mom said. "Here's some Italian seasoning to sprinkle on too."
Mom cut the buttered bread into squares. Before she put the biscuits and croutons in the oven, she pulled out some cinnamon rolls. "Would you like to drizzle icing on the rolls?"
"Yeah!" Joel breathed in the smell of the fresh cinnamon rolls. He made a mess with the icing as he tried to get some onto every roll.
"This makes me think of one of the names of Jesus," Mom said. "Do you know which one?" She took the biscuits and croutons out of the oven. "I'll give you a hint. It's what we've been making."
Joel looked at the biscuits, the croutons, and the cinnamon rolls. "I don't know. They're all different."
"Yes, but they're all some sort of bread, and Jesus is called the Bread of Life."
"Why is He called that?" asked Joel.
"In Jesus' day, bread was a basic food. People couldn't live without it, and we can't live spiritually without Jesus. He died and rose again to save us from sin, and we can only have life through Him. Whenever we feel spiritually hungry, we can go to Him. He'll remind us that He loves us and is always with us."
Joel popped a crouton into his mouth and smiled. Bonnie Clarkson
