“Taste and see that the Lord is good,” Psalm 34:8. There’s a difference between eating and tasting similar to the difference between hearing and listening. Hearing is sound waves. Listening is conversation. Likewise, when we eat mindlessly, hurriedly, joylessly – we miss something. Eating is caloric intake. Tasting is noticing, enjoying, savoring. And tasting, the Bible says, is an experience of the goodness of God. What if we approach this Thanksgiving with that desire? To set our worries aside and pull up a seat at his table of blessing. To savor his presence with us in the flavors and faces and conversations around the table. To notice and enjoy and not just eat but taste. Let’s make this Thanksgiving about experiencing the goodness of God.
