1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
Betcha’ Can’t Eat Just One (Lays Potato Chips)
This weeks topic deals with eating potato chips and how good they are. I love salty foods so I have a terrible time eating just one. Along with these chips that I can’t eat just one of, I cannot get enough of studying my Bible. I think it’s ironic that chips (salty foods) are such a temptation. In the Bible (Leviticus) it tells us that salt is regarded as a disinfectant and when babies were born the midwife covered the baby with salt to clean its body and also to ward away any evil spirits or demons.
Tell us about something that you can’t get enough of and what scripture(s) in the Bible you cannot tear yourself away from.
I mentioned in December 4th’s Homeschool Memoirs post that I enjoy m&ms. Well, that definitely is the thing I can’t eat just one of. Not even one handful. It seems once I get started I have to restrain myself not to finish the bag. Of course, if I had bought the snack size baggie I would be good but we always buy the big, family size which is easily my downfall. That is not good. Besides the unnecessary added calories I usually end up with a bad case of heartburn. I think that my m&m issues could be used as a life lesson: too much of a good thing and all that.
I’m sure I have said this before, but I absolutely love to read the Book of Proverbs. I have been through it many, many times and every morning I include a chapter in my morning readings. Every time I read it I learn something new.
A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
