I have started making baked Naan Chips, sprinkled with garlic salt and Old Bay Seasoning. They are so super crispy and tasty that even my “discerning” kids love them! The best part (besides no MSG) is that our constant consumption of Naan benefits our refugee friends here in Indonesia. It is one of the very practical ways that we can help. As I sit here to blog, crunching on these chips, I begin to think more deeply about bread.
This type of flatbread goes by many names such as Roti, Chepati, Pita, Lavash, Matzah, Tortilla, and the list goes on. It is a daily staple the world over – ingrained, if you will, into the fabric of every culture. Is it any wonder, then, that during Jesus’ ministry on earth, he identifies himself as the “Bread of Life?” John 6:32-33 Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” If a meager piece of bread has the ability to satisfy our hunger, imagine how much more, Jesus – the True Bread from Heaven, has the power to meet our every need and satisfy our every longing from today and forever!
