When Grain and Wine Abound

I love this from the psalmist in Psalm 4:7.

You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound.

-Psalm 4:7

The Bible is big on feasting (which I love), which makes this an even more powerful statement than it maybe seems.

I don’t think we talk about the pleasures of food and drink in the Christian world — I think they’re very powerful and can often be idols — and because of that this verse maybe doesn’t resonate like it should.
