As I thought about the holidays, the first thing that immediately came to my mind was relationships. Relationships with people I love and people I will share time with that I don’t get to share time with any other time during the year. Holidays truly are a special time, so I will make the most of the time I get to spend with them, especially while sitting around our old dining room table. I like table time because Jesus liked table time.
We know from Luke chapter 24 verse 36 and following that Jesus appears to his disciples, not as a ghost, but in bodily form, and after showing them his hands and side where he had been pierced, being from southern Galilee, I’m sure he said something like, “Y’all got something to eat here?” Then…….. AFTER THEY HAD EATEN…….it says he opened their minds so they could comprehend even more.
During, and especially after a meal, you share with people you love; opportunities arise for you to share things you may not have a chance to share at any other time.
