When it is mealtime, we think about the kitchen. It is a place where we can find nutritionist meals, snacks, mood foods, and choices of beverages. On the other hand, our kitchens’ visual image can display a sink full of dirty dishes, cookies burning in the oven, unpleasant smells of foods.
What is going on within our spiritual kitchens?
Are we baking God’s word through Bible studies, Scripture recitals, church fellowship, praise and worship, and serving and walking in humility?
Are we baking self-glorification, self-pride, self-righteousness or just self, self, self?
Are we baking people pleasers through our finances, services, and thoughts?
In our kitchens physically and spiritually, let us choose this day whom we will serve.
“Now therefore fear the Lord and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt and serve the Lord. 15 And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24: 14-15 ESV),
