Our lives have changed, especially when it comes to sourcing and preparing food.
Over the past 50 years, there has been a boom in restaurants opening with home-cooked meals steadily giving way to a drive-through meal, a Mr Delivery meal or a sit-down meal prepared by a chef.
It is important to say that change is not bad but gives rise to the new and very often improved. Change has led to scientific discoveries saving lives and providing incomes for restaurant owners and in turn employees.
In our fast-paced societies, there is however one thing change can cause. A steady decline in the importance of faith.
Has the place where we source our strength and nourishment for our souls changed? Now more than ever during a pandemic to whom do we cry out for provision?
“who led you through that great and terrible wilderness, in which were fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty land where there was no water; who brought water for you out of the flinty rock; who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers did not know, that He might test you, to do you good in the end…”
Deuteronomy 8: 15-16
When it comes to faith, let the only change that occurs be the depth of it!
With love always,
Author of Teacher on the Mount
