Jesus sat down with the diciples to eat the Last Supper. I think it is important to sit down with our families to eat a meal. It is important to take that time to be together and put other activities on hold for half an hour. These days it is so easy to just eat in a hurry and move on to the “bigger and better things.” Taking time out of our day to sit down and eat with others would probably help the health of our population as well.
Praying before a meal is also a good thing because it strengthens the family bonds since it reminds us that God is really the One in charge of things.
What do you think?
My family only ever prayed before Thanksgiving dinner but otherwise it was clear that dinner time was “family time”. We all ate at the kitchen table, we all talked, and we all cleaned up right afterwards (wash and dry and put away the dishes). Absolutely wonderful experience.
I think sit down meals are important too, but I did not grow up with them. I ate at the table and my mom ate in front of the tv. We were pretty disconnected during meals. I usually read something while I ate.
I think I missed out on some of that bonding time growing up so it is going to take some getting used to as I get older and get married.
