What is your favorite? Your least favorite?

You might be surprised to learn that all these foods and many more are mentioned in the Bible. Still, none of them are Jesus’ favorite.

John 4:34-35: Jesus said, “The food that keeps me going is that I do the will of the One who sent me, finishing the work he started. As you look around right now, wouldn't you say that in about four months it will be time to harvest? Well, I'm telling you to open your eyes and take a good look at what's right in front of you. These Samaritan fields are ripe. It's harvest time! (MSG)

What’s that you were saying about your most loved food?

Prayer: Lord we offer you so many things that you don’t particularly care for. Help us keep our eye on the best menu. Amen.
