Pro 19v24 – Your favorite meal

Imagine you have invited a friend around for dinner. You’ve spent hours preparing their favourite food. Finally, you are all seated and the food is served. It’s perfect. You look with joy and anticipation at your friend to see their response as they lower their fork to take their first mouthful. If it’s art on a plate it will surely be a symphony in the mouth. You wait. However, they don’t raise their fork. Their eyes droop. They sigh. “What’s wrong?” you ask. “I just feel too lazy to eat,” they reply. Imagine your shock, your disappointment, after everything you have done. This crazy picture is shared by Solomon – “A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth!” (Proverbs 19:24). While it seems like an unlikely situation, it’s one that occurs all the time – and could even be happening to you, now! The dish that is prepared for us is the Word of God – “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4). God has prepared the most delicious, life-giving food imaginable, yet how often are we just too lazy to open his Word and read it? Too lazy to lift even one verse, one chapter to our mind? Will you enjoy God’s meal today? Open Bible –,
