Space-Taker-Upper

Does anyone even like honeydew melon? I asked the waiter for some fruit for my oatmeal this morning.He brought a bowl to the table and hiding in the bottom of the bowl was one piece of honeydew melon. I put the berries in my oatmeal, ate the cantaloupe and pineapple and left the honeydew. It’s just “a space-taker-upper” after all.

Lord, make me more than a “space-taker-upper”. You have shown me unbelievable mercy and grace! You have caused me to be born again to a living hope, and I want to share that hope with each of the people that I encounter. I pray for the staff and volunteers of the Mustard Seed Cafe. May their hope in Christ be an encouragement to each person who comes through the doors today!

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…” 1 Peter 1:3
