If you could chose one person either living or dead to have dinner with, who would it be and why? Stop reading for a moment and really think about this. What is it about the person that rouses your interest? Where would you take them for dinner, or would you invite them to your home? What questions do you have for them? Are there things you want to tell them? Keep in mind, this can be anyone.
My first pick is Jesus. I would probably invite him to my home for dinner. Since he’s Jewish I would probably serve fish, rice and rolls, I figure this is a safe bet. Of course I would have a nice bottle of wine chilled. For dessert I would make a flaky apple cinnamon danish layered with nuts, ice cream on the side and fresh pinon coffee.
Why Jesus? He fascinates me, He always has, maybe always will. However, I don’t really have any deep Theological questions for him. I have the rest of Eternity to learn the deep and mystical. I want to get to know the man. I would ask what it was like to grow up in Israel 2000 years ago. Did he have any pets? What types of games did He and the other children play? Was there ever a time when He dated or was even interested in girls as more than friends? Does He have a favorite color, flower, food, drink, flavor? What does He think about the current politics of the world in general?Of course as the evening progresses I’m sure I’ll think of other questions.
The only deep question would be…Is there anything He really wants me to know (that I don’t already know or think I know).
Just some food for thought.
Have an Amazing Sunday!
