Read the Parable of the Lost (or Prodigal)
How often do you dine with swine? "Never" you're probably thinking. But you have and you do. Yes, each of us has dined with swine-not literally, of course, but we dine with swine spiritually each time we follow our own desires and wander away from the good things our Heavenly Father has for us.
Our Father has prepared good works for
us to do (
With every unkind, hurtful, nasty, careless, or untrue word we utter, we chow down with the pigs. Each time we participate in worldly pleasures which are contrary to God's Word and will, we are supping on the slop which Satan gleefully serves up. And it makes us spiritually sick to our stomachs.
We can wallow in the filthy pigpen and chew on trash in the hopes of somehow satisfying the emptiness in our souls, but it won't work. As long as we continue to rut around with the pigs, we won't have the glory, honor, and peace which comes only through Jesus Christ.
Why do we do it? Why do we foolishly choose
dining with swine when we can feast with our Father? He has prepared a
feast for us in His kingdom
