Dining on God’s Goodness

English Audio Version

What’s for lunch today?

Anything special? Or is it the same old same old, a wiener nuked in the microwave, a slice of reheated pizza, or a can of whatever we can find in the pantry?

God says he wants to provide so much better.

Psalm 128:2 tells us:

“You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.”

Have you gone to the grocery store? If you have the money, you can buy anything you see.

If cash is short, seeds are cheap. What’s growing in your garden? You can enjoy as much as you want.

Still feeling shortchanged, that your dining options are lean pickins?

This verse says that “you shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands . . .”

How’s your job search going? Have you sold that car you can’t afford? Is your house search for something more affordable still on track?

God’s goodness doesn’t mean chasing man’s finery. God says “you shall be blessed,” but if you’re envious, dare we say greedy, then where is God in that?

God’s goodness is shelter and food. If we have that, we’re blessed beyond compare.

If we want more, it’s up to us to get out and work for it.

God offers us his goodness, but it’s up to us to reach out and take it.
