Yesterday, we went to one of our kids’ houses (and i use the term “house” very loosely) to get all of his school books.  A couple of months ago, he apparently decided that he didn’t want to go to school anymore.  So he just stopped going.  In addition, he has stopped coming to the Peter Project.  Basically, he has removed himself from the Peter Project.  We just made it official yesterday.

It’s been a long time coming, but it doesn’t make it any easier.

My heart breaks for these children, especially when they are given opportunities and are unable to grab hold of them.

But it is such a picture of what we do in our Christian walks, isn’t it?  God is offering us a feast, but instead, we choose to feed on the trash of the world, which to us looks like treasure.

“Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.”  –Psalm 81:10

But we often won’t even open our mouths.  D.A. Carson says, “God is perfectly willing and able to satisfy all our deepest needs and longings.  Implicitly, the problem is that we will not even open our mouths to enjoy the food he provides.”

Let’s open our mouths to eat and drink of the treasure that is Christ.

Of course, I always leave you with some pictures….
