An honest farmer was asked to dine with a gentleman & there asked a blessing at table as he was accustomed to do at home.
His host said jeeringly, "That is old-fashioned; it is not customary nowadays for well-educated people to pray at table."
The farmer answered that with him it was customary, but that some of his household never prayed over their food.
"Ah, then," said the gentleman, "They are sensible & enlightened. Who are they?"
The farmer answered, "They are my pigs." - Christian Herald.
“The whole life of a Christian should be nothing but praises & thanks to God; we should neither eat nor sleep, but eat to God & sleep to God & work to God & talk to God, do all to His glory & praise.” - Richard Sibbes.
Psa 150:6 (JPS): “Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Hallelujah.”
