Perspective – Cast Your Bread

img_3462-3

“One of the very wise sayings in the Book of Ecclesiastes is:

“Cast thy bread upon the waters, for you shall find it after many days…”

Which means: Always be ready to do a good turn even if you don’t expect a reward for it. For, some day, you will surely find your reward waiting for you. ~ Chabad.org

The photograph of the feasting fish was taken in Jamaica. The ocean was so clear you could see sand and rocks on the  bottom through several feet of water. I was prepared with a bit of bread from lunch and cast it out upon the water. My reward was an amazing view of an array of tropical fish feeding off of the bread.

“Yeshua(Jesus) said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers for men!” ~ Matthew 4:19

I hope I am ready and willing to cast the “Bread of Life” upon the waters every day in any way I can. Let it be so Lord!

  1. I love the thought and the wise words and the interpretation, Kathy. I have often wondered what ” Cast your bread upon waters meant” and now I know.
    I know that you do that all the time and through your posts and otherwise.
    You are such a blessing, Kathy.
