Our kids have snack time every day. They sit at the table with their drinks and snacks from home. Some include loving handwritten notes from home and some include little finger sandwiches cut into cute little shapes.
Shortly after, I go into the teacher’s lounge each day to retrieve my lunch from the frig. Have you ever noticed how everyone else’s food always looks better than your own? I often am guilty of food envy. Between the kids and other staff members I always see something I wish I had.
I try to bring a fairly healthy lunch each day. A typical day brings hummus and pretzels, an apple and water. And I do hit the candy jar (for big people only) for my daily chocolate fix every day. But only once. And it’s the fun size! Girls just wanna have fun! 🙂
We need to eat to nourish our bodies. Just like we need to fellowship with our Heavenly Father through worship, His word, and prayer to nourish our souls.
What we put into out our bodies is important because our bodies are God’s temple. But more importantly is what comes out of them. Good thoughts. Good words. Good actions. But we cannot do it alone. We will never win God’s approval on our own. Let’s all seek God each day for our daily bread. Jesus alone is the bread of life.
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
It’s true that we can’t win God’s approval by what we eat. We don’t lose anything if we don’t eat it, and we don’t gain anything if we do.
