The Lord does not excuse our excuses: we don’t have the time, we don’t have the money, we don’t have the culinary skills, etc. Ask God to change this mentality and refocus, looking outward instead of inward at self, for this is not just about food; it’s about following in the steps of the one who fed the masses because he was moved with compassion and served supper to his disciples after humbly washing their feet.
I recently heard a talk by Sherry Turkle called Connected, But Alone?, which made me think . . . why do we hide behind our phones, texting instead of calling? Why do we meet people at Starbucks or Panera Bread instead of inviting them over to our house? (Yep, you read correctly — “invite, house” — those words, practically foreign to us these days.) Why do we freely share opinions through our Facebook status but can barely manage a conversation for more than five minutes face-to-face?
