Meat & Potatoes

I have long since forgotten, if I ever knew, Proverbs 15:17. What a delight then to have it chosen as the text for this morning’s service. Freely translated it says, “it is better to eat vegetables with friends than steak with enemies.” In its own way, that short aphorism seems to capture the whole spirit of the gospel. Perhaps, one just needs to add a parable about a Samaritan that starts with the question, “Just who is my friend.”
