Nutrition Facts

Girl Scouts are busy out there selling cookies right now.  We all know this is an annual fund-raiser for the Girl Scouts.  And we all know how good these cookies are.  I’m looking at a half-eaten box of Thin Mints (my favorite) as I write this.  How can anything that tastes so delicious have all those unsavory ingredients that are listed on the label?  Such things as thiamine mononitrate, folic acid, and cocoa processed with alkali!  Yuck!  There’s got to be a lesson in that somewhere.

Perhaps we learn that for anything to be really “good” it must also have some elements that aren’t so good.  Like marriage, for example.  For there to be a really good marriage, there must be a testing time that brings out the worst in each partner so it can be dealt with so only the good remains.  That takes a process of time and involves some yucky stuff, but, boy, is it worth it in the end!  Hang in there; it gets better.

This is so true! It reminds me of your sermon point this week when you said that your wife takes many things you wouldn’t eat alone and bakes them together to make something delicious. I underlined in my notes, “God WILL make something good out of the bad!!” Satan wants us to forget that and go spiraling out of control when things aren’t going well. But I am challenging myself to see what good God is up to when there are negative circumstances for me or my family. Thanks! 🙂
