1 Kings 18:42
So Ahab went up to eat and drink. But Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he crouched down on the earth and put his face between his knees.
There are many occasions to eat and drink, but the servant of God cannot engage in every one. The battle was not finished at Mount Carmel until the blessing of Jehovah was restored to the land. Ahab could eat and drink, but Elijah must pray until the rain began.
So the twelve summoned the congregation of the disciples and said, "It is not desirable for us to neglect the word of God in order to serve tables. Therefore, brethren, select from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word."
The Lord Jesus served the Word, but he also served food. The twelve apostles did not cease being servants. I imagine, like Paul (Acts 28:3), they still helped prepare meals when it was appropriate; but they carefully chose what they did so as to make the most of their time.
God, help me to make wise choices with the little time I have on earth.
Would you ask God now to help you use your time in the best way for His kingdom?
For me to live is Christ.
