Daily Devotional by Pam Ford Davis

Mission Accomplished!

We hear varied opinions and suggestions about time management. I wonder how much of our time is spent thinking about what we’ll eat.

Many cooks are efficient menu planners: they decide a week or more in advance what they’ll prepare.

On the other hand, there are procrastinators. Like me, they delay those decisions as long as possible. Being one who hates to cook, meal planning is not my cup of tea.

My Dad seriously wondered what Mom would be fixing for their next meals.

He was ready and waiting for each breakfast, lunch and supper.

Low on energy, Dad dozed in his recliner day or night. Upon awakening, he occasionally became confused; he forgot the time of day.

It was no big deal.

He just knew it must be time to eat something.

Apparently Jesus’ disciples were preoccupied with meals.

“Meanwhile the disciples were urging Him, saying, Rabbi, eat something.’ But He said to them, ‘I have food to eat that you do not know about.’ So the disciples were saying to one another, ‘No one brought Him anything to eat, did he?’ Jesus said to them, ‘My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to accomplish His work (John 4:31-34 NASB).”

Mission accomplished!

Jesus finished the Father’s work of sacrifice and salvation.

“He said, ‘It is finished!’ And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit (John 19:30b NASB).”
