Pour out upon us, O Lord, the spirit to think and do what is right, that we, who cannot even exist without you, may have the strength to live according to your will; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
EAT THOSE VEGETABLES…*push*
(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Ninth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)
As a child, I have a distinct memory of my Mom force feeding sweet peas to me… They used to make me gag… NOT ANYMORE… I HAD SWEET PEAS ON MY SALAD FOR LUNCH… I LOVED IT…
Although at first I rejected this food that I thought was wrong for me… Later… I discovered, I liked the benefits that eating sweet peas gave me.
- Peas are free of cholesterol and low in fat and sodium. They feed your muscles and brain.
- A cup of cooked green peas has 3.6 milligrams of lutein, an antioxidant nutrient that helps keep the cells in your eyes healthy. (Prevents vision loss as you age)
- Peas benefit your immune system with antioxidant vitamins, especially if you eat them raw.
- A cup of cooked or raw peas provides nearly 2 milligrams of zinc, an antioxidant mineral that promotes wound healing.
Eating my vegetables seems to be right…
Do you know what accompanies vegetables extremely well???
It is also considered very healthy for you…(FISH)…
Can I share with you a story that comes to mind when I think of fish???
Feeding the Five Thousand
30 Then the apostles gathered to Jesus and told Him all things, both what they had done and what they had taught. 31 And He said to them, “Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat. 32 So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves.
33 But the multitudes[a] saw them departing, and many knew Him and ran there on foot from all the cities. They arrived before them and came together to Him. 34 And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things.
If you were to read on…
You would discover Jesus feeding thousands of people with 5 loaves of bread and two fish…
THE PEOPLE ATE THE FISH…
If you read on…
42 So they all ate and were filled. 43 And they took up twelve baskets full of fragments and of the fish.
It is RIGHT…
EAT THAT FISH…
EAT THOSE VEGETABLES…
The Lord the Shepherd of His People
23 The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Before I went on a run… may I share with you what I was reading???
I love WISDOM!!!
1 Kings 4:29-34
29 God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore. 30 Solomon’s wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the people of the East, and greater than all the wisdom of Egypt. 31 He was wiser than anyone else, including Ethan the Ezrahite—wiser than Heman, Kalkol and Darda, the sons of Mahol. And his fame spread to all the surrounding nations. 32 He spoke three thousand proverbs and his songs numbered a thousand and five. 33 He spoke about plant life, from the cedar of Lebanon to the hyssop that grows out of walls. He also spoke about animals and birds, reptiles and fish. 34 From all nations people came to listen to Solomon’s wisdom, sent by all the kings of the world, who had heard of his wisdom.

An Invitation to Abundant Life
55 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.
2 Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And let your soul delight itself in abundance.
3 Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—
The sure mercies of David.
4 Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people,
A leader and commander for the people.
5 Surely you shall call a nation you do not know,
And nations who do not know you shall run to you,
Because of the Lord your God,
And the Holy One of Israel;
For He has glorified you.”
