Dim Sum – Banquets

Once on an assignment to China, our team had a surprise invitation from one of our host affiliate’s staff. It was his wedding banquet and we were invited to his home which was two and a half hours’ car ride from the city. It was a working week day and we arrived at this very imposing  three storey home on a farm, not expecting to see so many people in the celebration. There were business friends of the bride and groom, relatives from afar and their large extended family comprising more than 100 people. When lunch was called, we were seated around 40 tables of 10 persons per table.  Lunch was from around noon to six in the evening for we had a 20 course lunch including roast suckling pig, a must- have at celebrations of such significance. Chinese wine was flowing with lots of “bottoms up” all round (signalling  a fresh round of glass refills with wine) and everybody was in a celebratory mood.

Have you ever over-indulged in anything and later regretted it? Do you know people that seem to do this all the time? How do you think this could affect our walk with Christ? This is a great article written by ptl2010 from ChristianBlessings.
