What's Under Your Table?

"Nowhere is the tragedy of a divided church clearer than a Thanksgiving dinner where some stuff themselves silly and get slap drunk while others wait with distended bellies for the crumbs that never fall far enough for them to get a bite to eat. True, that’s the harsh reality in a world where the rich spend more on diets than the poorest of the poor spend on food. But surely that's not what our Father wants for his family. We’ve hardly begun to imagine the gift of God’s economy." (Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, 'God's Economy')

"Whenever you failed to do one of these things to someone who was being overlooked or ignored, that was me - you failed to do it to me." (Jesus; via Matthew 25: 45; The Message)

How's your table looking? Failed Jesus lately? Unfortunately I have. Something to think about. Peace.
