I had a big, fresh container of super red juicy sweet berries, and as I
washed and sliced them and placed them on the little dinette table for the kids to
devour, I felt a little stir in my soul (holy spirit?). I thought, isn't it funny how the
simplest, earth-grown foods are the very best things we can choose for our body
and physical health, and the most humanly altered and processed food items
are generally the worst? They might taste better and look more enticing, but it
comes down to the simplistic, organic foods that God put here for us to nourish
us best. As a parallel in life, the things that God wants for us, in general, are
often the most basic, simple things (kindness and generosity towards others and
love for thy neighbor) and are best for feeding our soul. The most human and
altered things (money, possessions, power) are the most harmful. We always
think we know what we want/need, but is it always in line with what He desires
for us? Something to think about as I watched with satisfaction as my kids
gobbled up the berries and reflected on this little epiphany and just felt led to
share with you today.
God Bless and be well, friends.
