Serving What Satisfies

Description

May we offer others the Living Bread; may we serve them with love.

“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.  They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people.  And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”  Acts 2:26

This kitchen, this is where I serve. Many days, this kitchen is where I live. These counters, nicked and crumb covered; this sink, one side piled high with drying dishes, could tell some stories. They’ve seen my joy as I gaze out the window at my laughing brood and raise still-soapy hands high in praise. They’ve seen the tears fall in defeat over the just-peeled carrots and the open pages of Psalms. They’ve heard my tongue snap in exasperation as another child screams through the kitchen and my whispered repentance later as I beg Him to make more of me. These walls have held late night laughter with dear friends and early morning remorse over broken dreams. They’ve held confessions and achievements and words--oh, so many sweet words.

I serve meals in this kitchen but I want to serve those I love what counts. I want to offer them the living bread, the only food that truly fills. Right above the oven are painted the words of Acts: “They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and generous hearts… and the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” I know these words like I know my own breath and the warmth of the sun on my skin. Time passes, and they will go, and only He will remain.
