En papillote is a term used to describe the steaming of food in parchment paper. I can hear you now. What; another cooking lesson; just what I need. And how is she going to make that apply to Jesus?
Never fear dear readers. I have a plan.
Here is your short but sweet cooking lesson for the day.
Parchment is the kitchen workhorse. Both sides are the right side. It is recyclable, reusable and it can take the heat and the cold.
Use it line baking pans and avoid clean-up while saving the surface of your pans from wear. Write on it. Scribble food names and measurements. Send a note to Aunt Bessie. Parchment takes it all. It can meet all your needs, filling in for baking cups or cake liners. Bake a meal in it.
And here is your scriptural application. Biblical manuscripts were generally written on papyrus, parchment, or paper. So I ask you are you to consider if you are applying the papyrus, paper or parchment, of the written word to your life?
It has all the benefits of baking parchment. It is our workhorse. It is recyclable, reusable and it can take the heat and the cold. It keeps us from nasty clean-ups and wear and tear. We can write on it, line our lives with it and more
Are we wrapping ourselves in the parchment of the scriptures? Do we keep it with us? It is a precious commodity. As Paul said:
[When] you come, bring the cloak that I left at Troas with Carpus, also the books, especially the parchments. (2Timothy 4:13, AMP)
Prayer- Lord when we consider your life’s story and your will for us written on your parchment, the scriptures, thanks for the reminder to use it well and use it often. Amen.
