The past week, we celebrated Thanksgiving, and it reminded me of the importance of sharing a meal. Although it is a simple act, sharing food with those you love and those who support you can help alleviate stress and help you find contentedness. Therefore, it is no surprise that the sharing of food is so prevalent in the Bible; from the last supper to the feeding of five thousand by Jesus, the gospel constantly emphasizes the strong connection between sharing food and spreading God’s word. I hope that over the next few weeks and into the holiday season, you find time to have a meal with someone you care about, whether it be a loved one, a close friend, a small group member, or anyone else because everyone deserves to share the food and share the love.
