Leftovers Will Never Suffice

When my two brothers and I were growing up, our family struggled to get by on my father’s income (even though he worked long and arduous hours for that income). My mother would cook a big roast for Sunday lunch.

From that good meal, we would have hot roast beef sandwiches on Sunday night, hash roast and potatoes Monday night, roast stew Tuesday night, tacos made from roast meat on Wednesday night and barbecue roast sandwiches on Thursday night.

What a welcome relief to have spam sandwiches on Friday and roast and left-over vegetables on Saturday — beloved, no one had to explain to us what “leftovers” meant.

God has always required the “best” from His people — never the “leftovers.”
