So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
Gourmet cooking shows hosted by celebrity chefs. Kitchen utensils, tools, and implements for every imaginable culinary need. Countless recipes and cookbooks. Restaurants catering to virtually every culture and palette combination under the sun. We have so many great ways to enjoy food that we sometimes forget to credit the source. Each time we eat or drink we’re given an opportunity to taste God’s goodness and thank him for his bounty.
Whether you’re enjoying apple cider and pumpkin bread or the last apples and corn of the season, it’s hard not to savor the delicious flavors of autumn. There’s a bounty of produce and preparations to be made for the winter ahead. Many people still make their own preserves, jellies, jams, and canned fruits and vegetables. They know there’s nothing like the taste of homemade marmalade made from their grandmother’s recipe.
Today, reflect on the food you eat with an extra measure of thanksgiving and an extra appreciation for those who grow, harvest, produce, cook, prepare, and serve your meals.
