When people’s consciences are unchecked, even when they do not feel guilty there is a remorse that diminishes their happiness. This is because they do not know the Source of the means of their happiness.
Happiness can be found in a meal. “In earlier days he permitted all the nations to go their own ways, but he never left himself without a witness. There were always his reminders, such as sending you rain and good crops and giving you food and joyful hearts.” (Acts 14:16-17)
Note that joyful hearts came with food, which came from good crops, which came from rain which came from God, the Source.
To truly enjoy a good meal is a sign that you know your Redeemer lives. When you can simply enjoy a good meal, you can enjoy all blessings with no remorse.
It’s a new year. Enjoy.
