Dinner Table Talk

Updated: Dec 31, 2019


Tonight at the dinner table with my wife, mother in law, and daughter I learned that none of them had ever read my blog. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. I rarely mention it around the house. And I rarely write in it.

One of the reasons I write with such rarity is because as someone has so aptly said, “History belongs to the intercessors.” If I only have so much time during a day and I haven’t prayed sufficiently, I usually am going to choose to pray rather than write. The writer of the Proverbs said in ch. 10 vs. 19, “Where there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, but he who restrains his lips is wise.” Another Proverb has also challenged me in this regard, “In all labor there is profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.” (14:23) I see prayer or intercession as the highest form of work and the most productive.

Now lest I mislead you, I do not pray as I should, though I pray every day and throughout the day. Anyways you can learn a lot at the dinner table if you listen in between bites. 🙂
