No, that is not a misspelling on my part. Pestaurants are part of the new norm in today’s world. They are called pestaurants because they serve up pests on the menu. Here is a sample menu.
- Thai Mai Mealworm Salad
- Jamaican Jerk Grasshoppers with Pineapple Salsa
- BBQ Beetle Tacos
- Rice Cricket Tacos
- Chocolate covered ants
- Barbecued mealworms
- Salt & vinegar cricket
- BBQ pigeon
Now you might be querying the pigeon part. It is not a bug but I guess some consider it a pest.
I found lots of pestilence in the Bible but few pests. Apparently, pests destroy crops.
I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the Lord Almighty. (Malachi 3:11, NIV)
What are the pests in your life that destroy your growth in Jesus? You might not really consider them as such but you know what they are and God sees them. Is it too much TV, lack of prayer, overeating, financial instability, not tithing? Name your bug so to speak and fry it up, destroy it.
Prayer- Lord, show us our pests and help us destroy each one so that we can grow to be more like Christ. Amen.
