From the Word: The light of the eyes gladdens the heart. Good news puts fat on the bone. (Proverbs 15:30)

From the Confessions: The Large Catechism, Introduction

One might say that whoever knows the Ten Commandments perfectly knows the whole of Scripture. That person can advise, help, comfort, judge, and decide both spiritual and temporal matters in all affairs and cases. He is qualified to sit in judgment upon all doctrines, estates, spirits, laws, and everything else in the world.

Pulling It Together: When I was in high school, my grandma tried everything to fatten me up, as we say. I think skinny me was a slight on her good cooking. God, also, has laid out a banquet of his good news in the Scriptures, which he urges us to eat (Psa 119:103; Jer 15:16; Ezek 2:8; Matt 4:4). Yet, we sure do have a lot of skinny people in his church.   

Prayer: Fatten me up, Lord. Amen.
