Does Our Food Define Us?

In my forty-eight years, I have eaten more fish dinners than I can count, while others dine on steaks on an ordinary day. But I don’t mind. Being what and where I am makes me thankful.

Some people say that we are where we are because we’ve limited ourselves and are not driven to get more than what we have right now. Okay… Ambition is good. Wealth is good.

But God didn’t create us and call us all to be millionaires. In fact, we cannot rightly measure our relationship with God by how much we have, rather, by how obedient we are to His will.

If having lots of money were the ultimate pursuit, how come many rich people are miserable? Some of them have even committed suicide.

In the face of the popular “health and wealth” gospels, the Apostle Paul’s statement stands – “…I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength. (Phil 4:11-13)”

If what you have now doesn’t satisfy you, nothing will.

Special Delivery

Food delivery usually comes via a motorcycle within 30 minutes from calling in your order. But in this case, our food came in a totally unexpected way – via COURIER (all the way from Cebu)!

Many times we take God’s blessings for granted.  Maybe because most of the blessings seem like everyday, ordinary things we’re so used to.  But God has His ways of calling our attention – like in life’s twists and turns and oftentimes, the unthinkable when you least expect it.  Thank you, LORD, for blessing us in many ways, for reminding us that You are in both the stillness and the storm, and in all the things in between.

And many thanks too, Ryan and Eileen.  Your gift came just in time for dinner tonight.
