Well...I'm just going to go on and tell you...they eat a LOT of bread in Moldova...and its yummy. It smells good. It looks good. It tastes good...its a sensory experience. They eat it with every meal...they just tear a piece off and snack. We stopped at a bakery in Hincesti anytime we went in to the city. The bakery had loaves of all shapes and sizes for people to buy. They all served different purposes...some bread was softer...some crustier...some sweeter....every bread has a mission...When you choose the right bread for the right purpose the end result is even better...All of the bread was yummy...but it was best when it was served according to its purpose. While the delicious Moldovan bread is worthy of a post of its own...it isn't the bread I am going to talk about today...as delicious and filling as Moldovan bread is....Today I am talking about a figurative bread....the bread of purpose.
The bread of purpose refers to how the show bread, or bread of presence in the tabernacle of the Lords temple, relates to us as Christians and our own God-given purpose in this world. Check out Leviticus 24:5-9 for the passage of scripture that relates to this bread...I am using the purpose quest website as a guide. I won't hit on all the points...just the ones I want you to know.
I know that our plan for June 2011 was to go to Moldova and love on some precious children in a hopeless country. His purpose was to rock our world in all kinds of ways. He is daily opening up our eyes to reveal His purpose in our life.
Here are a few morsels from the beginning of our Bread of Purpose...just pictures of the things/people God is using in our lives...to refine us...and reveal His plan to us...
