I’m not trying to get in the argument about whether God created the chicken or the egg first. That was supposed to be a joke, ha, ha. But here’s the focus of this post.
What was I to make for dinner tonight? I know, my husband’s favorite: fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, and lemon pie. Great idea, right? Afterall, he’s from the south and that’s a good ol’ southern meal.
My fridge was kind of empty so I needed to restock. I went to Walmart, my source of groceries. Wait! When we say grace at dinner, we thank God for our food. This got me to thinking.
If I trace this all the way back, the original Source of the food is from the Lord. Take the chicken for example. Going backward: Walmart, Tyson Foods, Chicken farmers, God. (Who created the chicken in the first place?) Try that on any food you can think of.
What about the green beans and lemon pie? “The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds.” Genesis 1:12 Proof that the ultimate Source for the green beans and lemon pie is God. Don’t forget the mashed potatoes. They come from the roots of the potato plant.
“All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time.” Psalms 104: 27.
The next time you say grace at dinner, you can focus on the true Source of your meal.
