Largest Piece of Bread

Last week in Sacrament meeting the talks were on the sacredness of the sacrament. One of the girls speaking talked about how during the sacrament one of the main things she does is that she is always looking for the largest piece of bread because she is always starving during the sacrament.

My wise bishop got up after the talks and realized how incredible of a thing she had said. If applied symbolically, that piece of bread is a piece of our Savior. It is an emblem of the great atoning sacrifice He made for us. Looking for the largest piece of bread is something I think everyone has done at some point in their life (I know I still do it). And that is exactly what we should do with the atonement. We need to search out the largest part of it that we can have. We need to hunger after it. Just as we do after that little piece of it every sacrament.
