The Perfect Holiday Recipe


With the Holidays quickly approaching, many people are looking for just the right recipe to help make their Holiday meal special. Well, actually, the Bible has such a recipe – it’s called “A Dish of Vegetables.” That’s right – a dish of vegetables. And it doesn’t matter which vegetable, how it’s prepared, or even what type of dish it’s served in.

Let’s look at the Scriptures: “Better is a dish of vegetables where love is than a fattened ox served with hatred.” (Proverbs 15:17)

In other words, it doesn’t matter how seemingly elegant the meal is, and how sumptuous the fare. At Holiday gatherings, our love for one another is really the only thing that makes a difference. It’s so easy these days to get caught up in the material aspects of the Holidays, or allow ourselves to be filled with strife, and forget what or who we’re celebrating in the first place.

So this Holiday Season, make the decision to follow the biblical admonition to “love one another.” Now there’s a recipe sure to make any Holiday meal special.
