Balancing Food Groups

Focusing on the Right Food

Don't work for perishable food. Quarantine provides an opportunity.

Key Takeaways

Several weeks into quarantine, I’m starting to feel restless. Yet, I’m also grateful to embrace the opportunity it presents to re-focus my attention on eternal food.

Like so many people, I am often driven by needs that seem urgent in the moment – whether that’s working or binging Netflix – but are inherently perishable. Today’s meditation reminded me that while ‘worldly’ concerns matter, eternal concerns matter more.

Today’s Scripture

“Jesus answered them and said, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled. Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him the Father, God, has set his seal.” So they said to him, “What can we do to accomplish the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent.””
