The Spiritual Buffet
March 15, 2014

One of the interesting things that happens when you travel during Spring Break is you get to see a number of families traveling together.   Gayle and I along with our son DJ took a quick trip to Florida this past week to visit family for a few days.  On our return we stopped over at a hotel that served a rather nice buffet breakfast.  As I was sitting in the dining area sipping on my coffee, a young family came off the elevator and journeyed across the foyer toward the plethora of food.   The mother was leading the pack and holding the hand of her little boy, while closely behind her a young man of about twelve years of age was bouncing up and down on his tip toes trying to catch a glimpse of the buffet over his mom.  I became intrigued by this young man who was obviously hungry. (What twelve year old boy isn’t?)  As I watched him it became obvious that his eyes landed upon something that seemed an answer to his prayer. . . his face lit up and he began to search for a passing lane around his mom and little brother.  As I finished my cuppa (Aussie for cup of tea or coffee) two thoughts went through my mind.  One- the verse of Scripture found in Matthew 5:6 - “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”  As I thought on this I contemplated my own hunger for the things of God and whether or not His people thirst for Him.  Secondly, I thought about the little boy who gave Jesus his lunch in John 6.   What a sacrifice for a little boy to place his five loaves and two small fish into the hands of Jesus.  He must have done so believing at first he would go hungry for the cause, never considering he would not only be filled himself and see a multitude fed, but also return home with twelve baskets full of leftovers.   I can’t help but wonder what a difference may occur if we approached worship the way that young boy approached that buffet. . . hungry and thirsty, expecting something great from God. 

On My Tip Toes,

Bro David
