Food and Drink

God is the person who formed our bodies to need food and drink, so it is no wonder that both these things figured so largely in His own life. He had fish meals with His disciples by the sea-shore. He ate with Martha and Mary and witnessed a family dispute and finally He had the Last Supper with His closest friends. He turned water into wine and five loaves into a gigantic picnic.

In our own lives there is great gain in settling down to a meal together. Confidences are often shared over the meal table which might not happen in other places. We can extend hospitality through offering refreshment to friends, family and neighbours. Also the stranger, homeless and hungry can be fed by us. God created such a good thing when He made us needing food and drink.
