Food for Thought...

Commit your work to the LORD,
and your plans will be established.
The LORD has made everything for its purpose...
Proverbs 16:3-4a

We had a visiting preacher speak at church tonight. He brought a great message! He challenged us with this verse:

Acts 13:36 (New International Version)
"For when David had served God's purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his fathers and his body decayed."
The message centered on our serving God's purpose for the time He has given us. How do we serve God's purpose? What is our purpose? I agree with our speaker that our purpose is to glorify God. How do we glorify God? I believe Jesus gives us the answer in Matthew 22: 37-38 when He quotes from Deuteronomy:
Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
When we follow these commands, I believe God will reveal his plans to each of us. For me, I firmly believe part of His plan for my life is to minister to my family and others through my kitchen. What is God's plan for you?
