Mom only got the good china dishes out for special company or holidays like Christmas. The rest of the time we ate from the everyday stuff. Oh, the food was always good, but when distant relatives visited Mom made a special show of the roast and the chocolate cake. Why, we kids even behaved better.
If God sat at our table night after night, how would our homes be different? Would we put out the good china and a big display of eats? Or would we use the cracked dishes; serve minuscule portions of slightly burnt food, in hopes that he wouldn’t linger?
Even when we treat him badly, God continues to offer us his good china because he loves us.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy and loving-kindness. (Psalm 103:8, AMP)
Prayer – Dear, precious good china God, thank you for thinking us worthy. Help us return the favour. Amen
