Meals

17 Jul

Meals at camp are a wonderful time of fellowship and sharing. Hopefully when coming to a meal, an experienced CFOer will find a new CFOer to eat with and take the time to get to know them. Meals are different at each camp, depending on how the facility is run, so care should be taken to help newcomers figure out what they are to do.

I think we know what Webster would say about this, but just to be clear, I will mention it that means to “take in through the mouth, ingest, chew and swallow, or to enjoy eagerly or avidly.”

In Scripture, we find that Jesus feeds the people. We know that he ate the Passover meal with friends and family and he also ate with tax collectors and sinners. Jesus knew that this was a good time to share good food and good conversation.

When we eat properly, our bodies are healthy. When our bodies are healthy, our minds and emotions are healthy. When all parts of our person are healthy, we make better decisions. Food is not a bad thing, but too much (or bad food) is not good. Meals should not be skipped, unless fasting for a time of prayer and we should never get to the point where meal time is unimportant. Meal time is a good time to fellowship or if alone, to relax and be thankful to God for His provision. Food is a gift from God and should be treated as such.
