How is God Like a Cafeteria Tray
Friends warned me before going to Israel that I could expect to gain weight because the food would be plentiful and delicious. Daily cafeteria-style breakfasts and suppers offered a variety of appetizing delicacies. With all the options, I wanted to use a tray so I wouldn’t drop any food on my way back to the table.
My youth pastor reminded me of these daily indulgences when he spoke on God being the foundation of our life. He compared it to a cafeteria tray. He said that many people allocate God to a certain spot or day much like they’d do with a food group on a tray. We may place a drink, entree, appetizer, and dessert on the tray. In our life, we may consider God, education, career, family, and health as separate areas. But the youth pastor pointed out that God does not want to be added to the mix on top of the tray, but rather He is the tray. God is the foundation to which everything else is added. We need God as the underlying factor upon which everything else depends and rests.
“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand” (Job 38:4 NIV).
