“Zacchaeus, come down quickly, for today I must stay at your house.” [Luke 19:5]
I really wasn’t planning on posting tonight, but when I read the Scripture reflection for today, within the Living Faith booklet, I couldn’t help but see a connection to an important element of “The Way to Nourish for Life” philosophy.
The reflection was entitled: “Our ‘Yes’ to a New Life” (by Fr. Kenneth E. Grabner), which pointed out how Jesus had chosen to be with Zacchaeus; and it was Zacchaeus’ whole-hearted “yes”, in response, that transformed his life.
So, you may ask, what does this have to do with nutrition, and my “way of wellness” here that I believe so strongly in? Well, we also have a choice to make. It begins with a decision… a yes. And it can be in this “yes’—to accepting a new way of nourishing [body, mind, & soul]—that we, too, can be transformed to a new life How great is that?! −EF
