My 19 yr. old son came in one afternoon and said...."Why is it that men look into a fridge full of food and say there is nothing to eat and women look into a full closet and say there is nothing to wear?"
This made me laugh at first thinking, How true and how funny"! But I couldn't quit thinking about it. I started pondering.
How can we look at abundance whether it be the fridge or closet or anywhere else and not see something we want, to not feel satisfied? We may be standing in front of a material feast, but there may be a famine in our heart. Maybe because what we're really wanting is a feast somewhere else like maybe. . .at His banquet table. I've heard of people who had SO much in their lives and yet were not content. Could it be because things don't really satisfy? They might for a moment or even a season, but they don't for a lifetime. But feasting at His table does satisfy, does make one content, does last a lifetime.
Maybe next time we look into a full fridge, or a full closet and we don't see anything we want, maybe it's the Bible that we should open up instead. In there we will find a mighty fine feast
and even a robe of righteousness.
