Not By Bread Alone

But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Matthew 4:4 NLT

But Jesus answered, “The scripture says, ‘Human beings cannot live on bread alone, but need every word that God speaks.’”

Matthew 4:4 GNT

Jesus answered by quoting Deuteronomy: “It takes more than bread to stay alive. It takes a steady stream of words from God’s mouth.”

Matthew 4:4 MSG

Mankind can not survive on only bread they need the word of God also. The bread feeds them when they are hungry, but the word of God nourishes their inner knowledge and soul teaching them the path to take and the knowledge they need to survive life away from sin and evil. It leads them to the proper path for their own life. The word of God keeps open a relationship with Christ so that he may help lead you along your journey also. To survive humans need both types of food for their life, the food to eat and soul food. For without it man would be lost and unfamiliar with how to think or act or lead themselves to survive they would be clueless and unable to fight off any evil attacks or have knowledge of any path for their future. It would be a boring fear filled journey in the unknown with no place of known start point.
