Bread – Putting Jesus First

Items needed:

  • A loaf of bread
  • A plate


Print the following instructions, along with an image of someone breaking off a piece of bread. Place it next to the plate with the loaf of bread on it.

Jesus said: I am the bread of life…

When Jesus spoke the words “I am the bread of life” he spoke to people for whom bread was a key part of their diet. They depended on it.

It isn’t always easy to depend on Jesus and to put him first. Take a moment to think about your life.

Confess to God those moments when you have failed to put him first. Tear yourself a piece of bread eat it.
As you eat remember the words of Jesus from the Gospels:
This is my body, broken for you…

Receive God’s forgiveness.
