The Skeleton at the Feast
Anger can taste good. Frederick Buechner reminds us how sweet it can be, “To lick your wounds…, to savor to the last morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back. The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you.” Ephesians 4:31, 32: “You must put away every kind of bitterness, anger, wrath, quarreling, and evil, slanderous talk. But instead, be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ also forgave you.” Feast today on forgiveness.
