Up To Know Good on Monday
September 25, 2006
I used to have a habit of always looking for the cheapest items on a restaurant menu. I would look at prices first and food second; I worried primarily about my wallet, not my stomach. A number of years ago, my friend Brian realized what I was doing. He reached across the table and covered up the column of prices on my menu and asked, What are you hungry for? At that moment, my thinking was jarred. What was I hungry for? I hadnt even thought to ask myself that question.
Do Good - As you look at a menu or shop at the grocery store, consider what you really want to eat. If you already do this, take the next step and pay the bill for another table at a restaurant.
I will always be grateful to Brian for revealing my narrow-minded thinking. Unconsciously I was limiting myself to what I thought I might be able to afford. In reality, I have never come up short on a restaurant bill because I ordered what I was hungry for! In this and many other ways, God has shown me His tremendously great ability to give me what I want and need.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Matthew 6:25. Click here to read more.
God, its so easy for us to get caught up in worry. Instead, today we choose to get caught up in thoughts of You. Thank You for all that You give us!
Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.
I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
