I was thinking about how lavishly God prepares His banquets. There are several banquets mentioned in the Scriptures but this particular one is in Isaiah 25. It says "On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine - the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth."
The people will respond like this: "Surely this is our God, we trusted in him, and he saved us. .. let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation."
When I think about this, I try to imagine how I could lavish my love on God. I think lavishness may be an attitude.
This year as I decorate my home, I will use the same decorations I always use, but my attitude will be one of lavishness. I will think about welcoming the birth of my Savior as I get out my "treasures" and place them around the rooms. I will sing the wonderful words of the Christmas carols for Him. Then I will serve my family a Christmas breakfast banquet.
