“Come Dine With Me” and “MasterChef Australia” are two TV programmes here in New Zealand, where I live.
FOOD FOR THE BODY
(We don’t have TV in our home, but there is a TV in the coffee shop, where I go for coffee, and sometimes you can see people eating in the coffee shop and on TV.)
Reading today about Christoph Blumhard reminds me of the two TV programmes.
Christoph Blumhard lived in Germany from 1842 – 1919 and was not only a clergyman but also the leader of a well known place for the needy (Bad Boll).
And this is what struck me when I read his story:
Not only his sermons, but also his devotions in his home for the needy were daily nourishing meals (In German: “bot er in kraeftiger Auslegung Gottes Wort als taegliche SPEISE dar, …”) and the Lord confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
I would have liked to dine at his table!
FOOD FOR THE SOUL
Let us always remember what the Lord says in Matthew 4:4:
“Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” [Deuteronomy 8:3] (The Amplified Bible)
