Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story could she stir up a Thanksgiving dinner. She had on the table everything you could ever imagine eating for Thanksgiving. Some things on the table I did not recognize, but, being at grandma's table at Thanksgiving time, I ate it. After we were at the table for a while, people started to leave. Grandma always would say, "Please, just one more bite before you go. There's plenty left." Of course, being at grandma's Thanksgiving table, she made the rules, and we abided by them out of deep respect. None of us had to be overly convinced to stay for just one more bite. We all left being as full as we possibly could be under her instructions. I do not think being full is the same as being a fool. In my calculations, not stuffing yourself at grandma's Thanksgiving table would make you a fool. Who wants to be that kind of a fool? Remember, grandmas are never wrong! A real fool would be someone leaving grandma's Thanksgiving dinner without being full. Believe me, I am not that kind of fool. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, it is my purpose to eat as much as I can to become as full as I can be. After all, on New Year's Day, I am going to make a resolution not to eat so much at each meal. That is then, but now I indulge myself to such an extent that I am genuinely full. As I thought of this, I remembered what Solomon said. "He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed” (Proverbs 13:20). A wise man will walk to the table of the Lord and stuff himself with God's goodness until he is full and overflowing. That sure is not being foolish. Tweet
