“Look to the interests of others” (Philippians 2:4, paraphrased).
“The Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase” (Psalm 85:12 ESV).
Stop to think of the foods you like to eat. Now imagine the food and its ingredients and the people involved in getting that food to you: farmers, ranchers, fishermen, truckers, sailors, longshoremen, etc.
Manifest your gratitude:
Prayer for gratitude: Dear Jesus, it’s easy for me to take for granted the food I eat while not remembering how it’s the result of others’ efforts. So please remind me that the food I’m able to eat is provided to me by a variety of people’s diligent work.
Prayer of gratitude: Jesus, thank You for the people who work hard to provide food for people all over the world. I ask that You provide well for them and their families, too. Please keep them safe while they do their important work. (If you know someone who is a food producer or handler, you can add a personal line to this prayer for them.)
