Take your time at the Table
For some of us the dinner table with our family and friends has become a coffee table with the T.V. glowing in front of our eyes. Well I recently read this Italian quote about the dinner table it says this: “A tavola non s’invecchia.” This amazing statement means this, “At the dinner table no one grows old.” This means that time stops at the dinner table that you can take as long as you can. This statement is not just something that comes from Italy it is also in the bible, take a look and see:
You see Martha was so worried about the meal that she forgot about the company that was there in her presence. Jesus was there and Mary was enjoying the time that she was able to spend with him. Why is it that when it comes to spending time with someone we lose the focus of what is important, the time with them. It is my hope that we as the husbands, fathers, and friends will learn to take the time with the people that God has placed in our lives. That we will take from the Italian saying the thought that as long as we are spending time with those at the table no one grows old. Take the time this week to just sit and be in the presence of the people at your table.
