30 Days of Grateful Praise:: The Grocery Store


They say you can tell where a person’s heart is by looking at their checkbook… My heart is apparently over the moon for Citibank Mortgage and the supermarket since these seem to be where most of my money goes.

Seriously I couldn’t imagine how much my grocery bill would be with more than just the three of us. When I find myself walking into the store multiple times every week I start to wonder if we’re consuming too much or if I’m really that in need of better hunting, gathering and meal planning methods. Please tell me I’m not alone..?!

It’s easy to take for granted and sometimes I’m even a little dismissive of the convenience a store 3 miles from the house brings. Forgot the cheese for tacos?? Just make a quick run to the store. Need another can of tomatoes to thicken the sauce?? Bribe the boy to stop by on his way home from work. No cows or garden needed. Thank goodness… I don’t think I would have been a good pioneer. I can’t even keep my houseplants alive...

We live in a place of abundance and convenience and a store on every corner stocked with shelves of prettily labeled provisions, but like Deuteronomy says, there is something or more importantly, someone we should never forget…

The houses will be richly stocked with goods you did not produce. You will draw water from cisterns you did not dig, and you will eat from vineyards and olive trees you did not plant. When you have eaten your fill in this land, be careful not to forget the Lord, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt. ~Deuteronomy 6:11-12


So I’m thankful for my daily bread from the store and from above. How about you?
