Today’s Tasting: Jesus called the men named as His disciples. In ancient days, teachers chose their own students as followers. He gave the disciples authority over demons and power to heal disease and affliction.
Jesus challenged the disciples, “As you enter a house, greet it with peace” (see Matthew 10:12-13). “Shalom Aleikhem” meaning, “My peace be upon you” is a traditional Hebrew greeting used by Jews throughout the world.
Jesus continued to charge his disciples (students) “When persecution comes, the Spirit of your Father will speak through you. You will be hated for my name’s sake…Fear not, therefore, you are more valuable than many sparrows (see Matthew 10:31).
Today’s Nourishment: How do you greet your husband, children, or family members when you awake in the mornings or in the afternoon—school for children, work for Dad and Mom. How do you greet your friends when they enter your home or you enter their home?
In our home, we greet one another with good morning, most of the time. In the evenings, we greet the one entering in a way that says, “I’m glad you’re home.” Greeting one another like this, may change the tone and atmosphere of your home, along with some attitudes. Since, scripture says, “You are more valuable than many sparrows,” you deserve a greeting of peace and owe it to others.
