“It is written, One does not live on bread alone.” Luke 4:4
In the Scripture for today, we find Jesus in the desert, fasting and praying for forty days and nights. The perfect motif for Lent, even Jesus, fully human, is tempted to quit when weak and vulnerable. He is so hungry that Satan tries to persuade him to turn stones into bread. Resisting, Jesus tells us that life is more than just consuming, more than just giving in to our insatiable hunger for more.
