“I Will Stop Eating Bread” Because This Is What I Saw In The Bible.
My name is Grace, I am a Christian and I attend a Bible-believing church, which I won’t like to mention it’s name for obvious reasons Best known to me.
While reading the book of Sirach for my morning reflections, I couldn’t understand what Chapter 34 from verse 20 – 21.
Below is the verse I couldn’t understand (Sirach 34 verse 20 – 21)
Offering to God from what belongs to the poor is like slaughtering a son in the presence of his father. Bread is life to the poor; he who takes it from them is a murderer.
After reading the portion above, I asked my self the questions below:
1. If you give God a stolen offering, is it a sin?
2. The scripture says that bread is life to the poor, does this mean that rich people should stop eating bread?
Brothers and sisters, I need answers to the questions above because am totally confused.
