The Feast

dinner-tableMany of us will pull ourselves up to a table to feast on turkey and all the trimmings this week…and some of us more than once!

But have you ever paused to think what exactly you’re feasting on? Not necessarily on Thanksgiving, but on a regular basis?

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also ~ Matthew 6:21

Do you feast online, devouring Facebook updates and Tweets? Do you feast on the accolades you receive over your clean house? Are you feasting on the bottom line of your work spreadsheet as you present it to your boss after an 80 hour work week? Perhaps you’re feasting on your kids’ latest trophy win.

Whatever it may be these days, take time to consider where you’re feasting; that is, where you’re spending the majority of your time and energy. Because if you’re spending it anywhere other than the Father’s table, everyone else that comes in contact with you is only going to get the leftover’s of your table scraps, instead of equal portions of His plenty.

Come, all you who are thirsty,
   come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
   come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
   without money and without cost.
 Why spend money on what is not bread,
   and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
   and you will delight in the richest of fare.
~ Isaiah 55:1-2
