"Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen." (Isaiah 28:28)
Today's Morsel: One of the highlights you find here in Wisconsin is that they like to do a lot of reenactments. My wife and I and some of her relatives went to an old Norwegian farm and watched them reenact how it was to live on the farm in Norway. One of the things they did was the thrashing of wheat to turn it into flour. I even got to try my hand at it. Isaiah said that bread corn is bruised. Jesus is the bread of life, therefore, He had to be bruised in order to become the bread of life for us. Isaiah said of him, "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5). The next time you feel like the pressures of life are coming on you, just see it as Jesus thrashing you so that you can become bread to help feed others.
Sing: He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, surely He bore our sorrows, and by His stripes we are healed.
Thought for Today: Bread corn is bruised.
