LOVE MAKES THE MEAL
When there is no love in the home no amount of food or furnishing can compensate. Without love, a rich banquet is dry and tasteless. Without love, the steak is too tough and the bread, too hard.
But with love, the simplest fare is life-giving. Everything tastes better with love. Even greens with vinegar and no meat satisfies when eaten together in love. Make sure to include it in every recipe. Love makes the meal.
PRAYER: Dear Father, You are the source of love. For the Bible tells us that God is love. Therefore, we invite You to sit at the head of the table at every meal. The Word also says that man does not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Your loving presence and word make every meal better, regardless of the menu. Your love is better than life. Help us to always live according to Your love. In Jesus’ name, amen.
