July 11

My dad is a cattleman, and decided to feed out a steer to slaughter, and have his meat ground into hamburger. By the time all was said and done, we each got about 150 pounds of hamburger! It was too much for me and Richard, so I distributed some of it to my children. Now all their freezers are full. I love that my parents are still taking care of us, and are now providing for their grandchildren, and great grandchildren. 

When King Josiah reinstated the Passover, though he wasn’t as wealthy as King David, Solomon, or Jehoshaphat, it is said that he slaughtered more livestock than any of them, and gave sacrifices for the poor to offer. Then they shared in the feast. Did you know that when you share your love for Jesus with others, you are sharing the feast? Jesus is our Passover lamb. He is the bread of life, the living water, and is what our souls need to survive. As parents, we provide for our children's sustenance, but as believers, we provide living food for the soul, which is Jesus.

Then Josiah contributed to the lay people, as Passover offerings for all who were present, lambs and young goats from the flock to the number of 30,000, and 3,000 bulls; these were from the king's possessions. 2 Colossians 35:7

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. John 6:35
