I have really enjoyed thinking about the times that Jesus spends at table. It is so much more than learning from Jesus, it is a reminder of how Jesus was also human and needed to share in fellowship and food. I have also heard it said that Jesus often found trouble when he was at table, never escaping from teaching others through the ‘trouble’ they faced.
Ah… the standard line of ‘All you need is Love’ – the Beatles sang about it, the flower power movement chanted it and a Harvard study in 2009 even agreed it – all we need is love. Yet, just because the secular world has claimed it for their own, does not mean that God’s truth has stopped being truth. There is something very powerful about God’s intentions, how could there not be worldwide ‘love’ movement?
