Knowing God - Luke 22:19

(fp)

Then he took a loaf of bread,
and when he had given thanks ...
Luke 22:19
 
One of the greatest events in scripture occurs at table. In this moment, Jesus is poised between two great things.
 
On one side is God's wonderful provision -- bread! On the other side is an eternal meal of blessing, presence, and forgiveness -- Holy Communion. In the center is a holy moment. What will Jesus do to connect God's continual provision with a new and eternal blessing?
 
He pauses to give thanks.
 
On one side, God has given you much. On the other side, he wants to give you eternally more. Pausing in the middle -- and a little more frequently -- is a key to true blessing.
 
Let us pause today to give thanks.
 
In Christ's Love,
a guy who will take bread
... and another piece of bread
... and some extra turkey
... and a second piece of pie ...
which means
I really need to pause many times today
and give thanks for daily bread ...
the freedom and wealth to eat of my choosing
... a good family ... a good church ...
and so much more!
Happy Thanksgiving!

That really about says it all.
