Salad or Spoon

Last evening was group study night. We pool dishes of food and the combination is always a feast for us young and older suburban women. My contribution this time was a Superfood Salad. 

So with my Sweet Kale salad mixed in a crystal bowl and with a fine, fancy designed and crafted spoon for serving, I was all set – expecting at least one lady to notice my unique spoon.

Nope. Just the salad. The salad was all they could talk about.  How did I make it?  What’s in it?
Open the bag and mix.
Broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, chicory, dried cranberries, roasted pumpkin seeds, and a poppy-seed dressing.
Where can we buy it? I got it at that place everybody complains about going but goes anyway. You know the place.
On they went: this is so good! And to think it is healthy! Not a word about the spoon!

As it should be!

Now. Let’s say we are the spoon and JESUS is the salad. Which one should be the questions about?

Oh, HOLY SPIRIT, make me a spoon and The LORD JESUS all the people talk about when the message is served.

John 3: 27 John answered, “A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven. 28 You yourselves testify that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah,’ but rather, ‘I am sent before Him.’ 29 The one who has the bride is the bridegroom, but the best man rejoices when he stands and hears the bridegroom’s voice. So now my joy is complete! 30 He must increase, while I must decrease.”  source

Wings!

Deuteronomy 32:But Adonai’s portion is His people— Jacob is the share of His inheritance.
10 He found him in the wilderness land, in the void of a howling waste. He surrounded him, cared for him, guarded him as the pupil of His eye.
11 As an eagle stirs up its nest, hovers over its young, He spreads His wings, catches him, lifts him up on His pinions.
12 Adonai alone guided him—there was no foreign god with him.  source

Are you in the void of a howling waste? Then let Him come, care for you, lovingly guard you, be as fiercely protective over you as the pupil of His eye. Let Him spread His wings over you as an eagle does its young. Let Him teach you to fly. Let none of us have foreign gods!
