Proverbs 9:1-5 “Wisdom has built her house, She has hewn out her seven pillars; She has prepared her food, she has mixed her wine; She has also set her table; She has sent out her maidens, she calls from the tops of the heights of the city: Whoever is naive, let him turn in here! To him who lacks understanding she says, Come, eat of my food and drink of the wine I have mixed. Forsake your folly and live, and proceed in the way of understanding.”
Dogs eat crumbs from the Master’s table, but sons and daughters sit at the table with the Master and dine. In a day when certain people weren’t invited to come and dine, faith said, even the dogs eat the crumbs from the Master’s table. We don’t live in that day, we have access to the chairs at the table.
We are invited to come and dine with him. Unfortunately most don’t value the King, nor his table so they make every excuse why they can’t make it to the feast wisdom has prepared. It’s no wonder collectively we don’t have the mind of Christ because most are getting their information from the streets rather than from the table.
In the kingdom of God wisdom is served at the table; the mind of Christ is gained at the table; celebration happens at the table; and everyone who sits at the table recognizes the value of the King who sits at the head of the table. Clearing your schedule in order to never miss a meal at the King’s table is easy for those who have tasted and seen that the Lord is good. The invitation still stands for anyone who hears the call to come to the table.
