Read more of my short devotions on this blog or on Pinterest.

“The devil said to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.’

Jesus answered, ‘It is written: Man shall not live on bread alone.’” Luke 4:3-4

If Jesus didn’t have the power to turn stones into bread, it wouldn’t have been a temptation. Jesus restricted himself to only doing what he saw his Father doing (John 5:19). By submitting himself to limitations, Jesus became our Saviour. He also became our example. We don’t put on a show for the benefit of others, rather we go about humbly doing good without attracting attention to ourselves.
