Psalm 23:5 You spread a table before me in the presence of those who trouble me; you have anointed my head with oil, and my cup is running over.
Yet God is always building bigger tables and welcoming the presence of enemies, strangers, and us. God is preparing space for conversations to take place, among friends and particularly with our enemies and those who trouble us. When we enter into this conversation, invited or not, we help close the gap of “otherness.” We move from the divisions of this earth to experiencing the kingdom of God.
MOVING FORWARD: Invite someone new to your table—literally and figuratively.
