God and man at table are sat down

I was reminded this morning of an old song I learned years ago: God and Man at Table are Sat Down.  I was reading Exodus 18 and ran across this phrase (verse 12) “And Aaron came with all the elders of Israel to eat bread with Moses father-in-law before God.

There is something really special about breaking bread with others, but imagine it – it also occurs later again in chapter 24 of Exodus – God spreads a table for His children “They beheld God and ate and drank” (Ex. 24:11). These pictures which are a foretaste of the Lord’s supper observed by Christians throughout the years bring a thrill to my soul every time I run across one of these events in the scripture.

They cause me to bow down and join in with the psalmist, “What is man that you are mindful of him?” (Ps.8:4).
