November 7

What a gift God has given to us in the diversity of food we can eat!  Peanut butter is very different from a cut of beef or a slice of melon.  The taste of a mushroom is so different from the taste of an apple.  The consistency of pumpkin is so different from the texture of an almond.  We need to eat to survive, but God could have made our food boring - all the same color and texture and taste.

"God blessed them and said to them, 'Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and master it.  Take charge of the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and everything crawling on the ground.' Then God said, 'I now give to you all the plants on the earth that yield seeds and all the trees whose fruit produces seeds within it.  These will be your food.'"  -Genesis 1: 28-29

Gracious and generous Lord, thank you for all the wonders with which you fill the earth.  Thank you for all the food you give us to eat.  Thank you for all your love.  In Jesus' name, Amen.
