What's for dinner?

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of websites dedicated to recipes for food.

And if you want to see how to prepare food, then take a gander at the gaggle of youtube channels available just waiting for you to subscribe, and give them a thumbs-up.

And who doesn't have a recipe or two, or twenty from a grandma, or mom, or mom-in-law, not to mention friends, as well as the cookbooks that line a bookshelf.

All that to say there isn't a good reason to say that you can't cook, or to not prepare a meal for yourself, and a neighbor, your husband, your company, friends, and children, or to carry a casserole to countless needy souls in this world.

Excuses abound to not prepare, and one excuse is good as another when you don't want to do something, but for the redeemed woman, God has changed her desires.

Because of the new-birth, the woman, who now loves God, will be tempted to laziness, and the desire to be served, but she will, in the end, don her apron and get to it.

The wise woman brings in the food, and feeds her family.

It is essential to life, and yet the evil one would tempt us to believe that it is an unworthy chore.

"You don't have to do that! It is somewhat beneath you. You are smarter than that."

Have you heard those words, or similar ones, in your head?

Where is your heart?

Does it submit to lies, or does it follow truth?

Do you serve or wait for service?

I pray that "what's for dinner?" will be a welcome question, and that you will have an answer!

We are to serve the Lord with gladness, and when we serve others, we serve him.

With your broccoli cheese soup, serve a warm smile, and with the same smile, wash your dishes!

Work with all your heart, and serve with joy, for that is the example left by our Master.

Walk the narrow road serving up delicious meals.

Your reward waits.

He is preparing a table for you!
