“Why did God give us teeth?” asked the little one. She giggled and then shouted her answer before I could get a word in. “To hold our lips out!” she giggled some more.
She does have a point. Lately, it’s very fashionable not to use our teeth. Current food fashion indicates that we blend everything and ‘smoothie’ our way through our meals.
I wonder what Paul would have made of that!
I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ. I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? (1 Corinthians 3:1-3, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, give us the courage to take a bite out of life, instead of slobbering it to death. Amen!?
