Written on 3:34 AM by Pastor Coon
A godly farmer was doing business in 'the big city' and stopped at a restaurant to eat lunch. When his meal was brought, he bowed his head and silently gave thanks. A group of loud young men at the next table saw what he did, and one of them called out: "Hey, farmer, does everybody do that where you come from?" "No," replied the farmer, "the pigs don't."
Giving thanks at the table can often become routine. We forget that this simple act of worship is really at the heart of our Christian faith; we are acknowledging our utter dependence upon God. To eat without giving thanks is arrogance and pride.
