Give us this day our daily bread is interesting It is an imperative

Give us this day our daily bread is interesting It is an imperative As though it is in Abba's power to give us bread It is also recurrent  Daily implies every day including today  And finally it is our bread  It belongs to us 
It as as if Abba has something of ours  And that's the nub 
This is saying make sure we get our bread today  It is entitlement a right  We are asking Abba to see to it that we are fed  When we are not fed  something is standing between us and Abba  How about poverty  How about scarcity  How about selfishness  How about greed  If the bread is ours to begin with  we are asking Abba to clear away these possible barriers  We are assuming that Abba has the power  to conquer poverty and greed and all these other things

Signs are about objects, in every sense of the word “pragmata”

Signs are about objects, in every sense of the word “pragmata”, and
Peirce was about the same pragmata that he arranged his signs about.

I believe it's true that fixating on signs in isolation from their objects
and interpretants, along with fixating on single triples in isolation from
the triadic sign relations in which they take their place as elements, are
the main obstacles that keep would-be understanders of Peirce's signs from
getting off the ground when they seek to apply Peirce's theory of signs to
significant practical objects.  It is my object to do something about that.
