Our Daily Bread

“Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”
—Matthew 6:7

In committing himself to a life of poverty, Francis took seriously the belief that God would provide his daily bread. He was also mindful of the impression he and his brothers made, leaving their wealth and then begging food from the townspeople.

Francis began his new life by rebuilding churches stone by stone.[source:Our Daily Bread/]
