Commensal (1 Corinthians 11:20-27)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “commensal.”  I remember growing up having dinner every night with my family.  That changed when both my brother and I were in high school.  By that time each of us were in a ton of extra curricular activities, including school and sports and anything else that you could think of that would take a family away from being able to eat every night together.  I think it was my junior year, about halfway through one of my sports seasons, that I came home one night around 11 PM, as hungry as a bear.  I opened up the refrigerator to find a plate of food with my name on it.  That was the first time that I realized that the once normal commensal meal with my family would no longer be a part of life.

“For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.” ~1 Cor 11:26

My question is: when is the last time you have some really good God time? I know that there are a ton of things in your life pulling you in different directions. The tough part about all of that is knowing when to slow down and give God the time he needs to speak into your life; this is what leads to significance both in this world, but more importantly in eternity.

Praying for you,
