Week Twenty-Five Feast

The scripture verse, this week, is sad, revealing those who seek glory for themselves rather than for God. They might even believe they’re honoring God, but deep in their hearts it’s for themselves. How often do I think I’m honoring God but deep in my heart am focused on myself? Shakespeare’s quote could be turned a couple of ways. The darker view is focusing on self. I’ll choose the brighter view that fanfare and grandiose gestures are unnecessary for a feast. It’s the state of the heart and the company, even if it’s a company of two, you and God.

Matthew 23:5-7

5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,

6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,

7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast. ~ William Shakespeare
