The Beautiful Beatitudes, Part 4

One of the signs of a healthy person is an appetite. I remember so very well my last hospitalization for open heart surgery and how I lost my appetite. We might say that that is normal, but to lose one's appetite is only normal if there is some way one can account for it. Certainly it is not normal to remain indefinitely without an appetite. I was glad when my appetite returned and I began to enjoy food again. Have you ever thought of how much of our enjoyment in life is related to food and fellowship. God set feast days in the Old Testament calendar so that people could enjoy going to Jerusalem to celebrate and worship.
