Saturday morning took us to the park where we joined the festivities of our grandson‘s karate school. It was an interesting mix of people from all different walks of life, joined together to support the students, and have a little fun. You could see the heart of the instructor who owns the school and his love for what he does. Karate is not a cheap sport, but you could tell by some of the students and their families, that he probably barters to help them afford the training. It was a feast! I expect that one day when God has prepared a table before me in the presence of my enemies, it might look something like that. It may be a little more posh, but the mix of people, and the common bond will be similar. The funny thing is that it’s not at all what I pictured the feast before my enemies to be, but God reminded me that it would be very similar. Is it ever what we picture when it comes to the things of God? Keep your heart open to people different than you. You will learn new things, and you will be exhibiting the behavior of Jesus.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Psalms 23:5
