We should want to experience new things constantly. If we have the same old experiences we have the same old faith. If we have the same old love, we will have the love of yesterday. We need to bring newness to our spirits.
“A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough” is good advice for new bread. Just a little tiny bit of leaven causes a huge change to the whole loaf. Leaven causes things to rise, change and become new. This can be in a negative or positive way.
It only takes a little bit of gossip, discontent, criticalness, or resentment to cause our whole body and mind to be affected, not to mention a whole family, marriage, business, team or whatever. In the positive it works the same. Just a little leaven of kindness, joy, love, peace, justice and gentleness can be the beginning of new bread.
“Give us this day our daily bread.” Jesus
