Great Food

Chapter three of Ecclesiastes is full of God’s glory. Look at verses twelve and thirteen. “I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God.”

At our women’s Bible study we were discussing the fact that scripture says our bodies are not our own but God purchased them. Because the Holy Spirit lives in us, we are literally the temple of God. One of the women smiled and said, “He likes ice cream.”

We all laughed, but she makes a good point. God has given us gifts of food and drink to enjoy.

Today, enjoy these gifts. Look at the color of your food; breathe in the aroma; notice the texture. Rather than rush through your next meal, savor every mouth full with thanksgiving.
