King’s Banquet

Love by George Herbert.jpeg

Made this graphic a year ago while reading a poem by George Herbert, called “Love,”  in one of Tim Keller’s books. Tears swelled in my eyes as I registered this glorious, beautiful truth. I was reminded of this today in my Human Personality class with Dr. Ed Welch. He shared how we eat at the King’s banquet. Though eating at His table once would be more than enough, we are invited to this table everyday. Something about this imagery of eating, feasting, being invited, and receiving hospitality is utterly magnificent, personal, and satisfying.

Who would’ve thought that with one imagery, all my doubts, dissatisfaction, wants, and needs could be quenched and stilled.
