Wheat is the symbol of transformation, shown in its seed that turns into bread. By raising it, men stopped being savages and learned to manage nature’s resources. According to the Bible, God honors wheat and work by saying:
“With fatigue, you will pull the food from the ground every day of your life...By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread”.
In the Gospel, Jesus multiplies bread, proving that He is the source of real nourishment:
“I am the bread of life. He who comes to me, will not be hungry”.
Wheat is also symbol of generosity and bonanza, since the ancient gesture of “tossing” wheat seeds for its farming, teaches us that in order to receive, first we need to give.
