We read in Scripture how Jesus dined with His followers. Friendships are made, deepened and sometimes broken around meals. Judas is a perfect example at the Last Supper. Gathering together around a meal tends to bring out characteristics of the human person that we may not see in other settings, such as at work, school, etc. Meals are vitally important, and in this day and age they have been disregarded as a waste of time, another one of Satan’s tactics that we fell for. How long do you dine with family and friends? What sorts of conversations do you have? Are technological gadgets prohibited or allowed at your meals? Are certain topics of discussion off limits, or does anything go? How often do you gather with loved ones and just savor the food and the time together? When was the last time you all had a hearty laugh at the meal table? Share your take with Jerry and Debbie on Thursday.
