Spiritual Quote of the Day (Poet Edward Taylor, on the ‘Bread of Life’)

“What wonder's here, that Bread of Life should come
To feed Dead Dust? Dry Dust eate Living Bread?
Yet Wonder more by far may all, and some
That my Dull Heart's so dumpish when thus fed.
Lord Pardon this, and feed mee all my dayes,
With Living Bread to thy Eternall Prayse.” —New England Puritan minister and poet Edward Taylor (1642-1729), “Meditation 9 Joh. 6.51. I am the Living Bread,” in The Poems of Edward Taylor, edited by Donald E. Stanford (2014)
