Lord, I am baking cookies
to share at a meeting today.
I wonder if your mother
made special treats for you.
Most Near Eastern people do not eat
foods that are as sweet as ours.
The Israelites looked forward
to a land flowing with “milk and honey.”
John the Baptist ate locusts and wild honey.
I am glad to use sugar
purchased at the store, Lord.
Thank you for all our good food.
My child, eat honey, for it is good, and the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to the taste.
Now John was clothed in camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.
Hymn: Be Present at Our Table, Lord
