Food is personal. It appeals to our preferences, conjures memories of our childhood, and forms our holiday traditions. Good food can make a celebration special or comfort those who are weary.
Preparing meals for our family is one of the significant ways we impact their health and foster relationship as we gather around the table together. It is an act of service that meets practical need and demonstrates the value of those served at the same time.
We swap recipes and thumb through scores of cookbooks in our lifetime. In doing so, may we remember that it’s really not about the food or the skill in preparing it, but the health, relationship, and love conveyed all in this simple act.
Good food is God’s idea—He’s preparing a banquet for us in heaven.
