The Dependent Spirit of the Lord's Prayer
Matthew 6:11
Give us this day our daily bread.

I. The source of the supply.

II. How the supply is granted. He grants strength of body for toil; by the wonder-working of His providence.

III. God's blessings are gifts.

IV. God will have us live upon His bounty day by day.

V. The unselfishness and sympathy of the petition — "give us."

VI. Contentment with God's measure supplied is taught by this petition: not what we wish, but what we need.
