    I was reading something and found another little nugget of truth.

    John 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

    The author was talking about her worry for her son and then she read this verse and realized that she needed to take care of her own problems with the Lord and then pray for her son.  She did that and peace came and her burden lifted.

    How often do my own fears and sins contribute to my worries about my children?

    I realized something else.  “Why do I pass up the delicious meal that God has prepared for me (the Bible), in favor of the crumbs (the little nuggets of truth that someone else has written about the Bible)?

1 Comment to Dinner? Or Just Crumbs?

  • Good thinking, Liisa. Perhaps we all are liable to do the same thing — pick up the crumbs and leave the “meal” for someone else.
