The Best Nachos

As I was watching one of my favorite shows, This is Us, Beth and Randall were discussing their lives as husband and wife. They both love nachos, but as Beth noted, they both loved the “full nacho” covered with lots of cheese. She showed Randall the bowl  with only the left-over crumbs.  How often do we give those we love, “just the crumbs?” Do we keep the best for ourselves? I know we all feel we make sacrifices for our spouses, children, grandchildren, parents and other family, but do we sincerely? Are you there for your children and grandchildren when they have special occasions in their lives, or are you too busy with your own events and friends? Are you there for your parents as they age and could use some help or a listening ear when they are alone? Do you give your time and attention to your spouse or are you too enthralled with your career or personal interests, or even worse, have you abandoned your spouse to begin an affair? What if you gave the best nachos to others and saved the crumbs for yourself? Acts 20:35(NIV)”… remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive. ”
