A Small Serving of Vegetables Please!

“Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil.  Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred” (Proverbs 15.16-17, TNIV).

I’ve been trying to reflect on this giant tidbit of wisdom the last few days.  I live in a culture that seems to ignore God more and more in pursuit of its own agenda…some of which looks very appealing, regardless of your religious convictions.  I am not immune to culture nor is anyone else.

Lord…please help us to be content with the small serving of vegetables, to feast on you and your ways alone.
