I love the holiday season. I have many reasons for this, as I’m sure you do. Near the top of the list for me is the food. I always enjoy eating but I especially enjoy eating on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Can I get a hallelujah!? Ham, turkey, steak, mash potatoes, gravy, stuffing, mac and cheese, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, bread, pumpkin pie, pecan pie. Wow. I’m salivating.

What does the inerrant Word of God say regarding these holiday delicacies? Quite a lot. Psalm 136:25 teaches that food is a sign of God’s love. Ecclesiastes 2:24–25 states that enjoyment of food and drink come from God’s hand, for where else could this pleasure come from? In 1 Cor 10:31 Paul specifies that when we eat, we need to do so for the glory of God. And in 1 Tim 4:4 and 5 says that all food is created by God and therefore good. Food should be received with thanksgiving and prayer

Is it OK to enjoy the food that God has given us? Absolutely. In fact, it’s commanded: “Go, eat your bread with joy, and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already approved of what you do” (Eccl 9:7). This Christmas enjoy what God has given you. Feast! We serve a good God who blesses mankind with delicious food. Glorify Him by enjoying His blessings.
