In my family growing up we used to call a dish that consisted of strawberries, jello, ice cream, whipped cream and a pretzel/butter crust, “Strawberry Pretzel SALAD,” just so we could eat it with the meal and bring out more desserts later. Salads are anything with layers, right? Pretty sound logic I think . . .
So, there’s always room for dessert. Ok so, that’s not entirely true … Sometimes there’s room for 2 desserts – haha. I know, the worst article to write in the middle of a 21 Day Fast (the Lord works in mysterious ways – hehe). But here’s the point – sometimes the best things about God actually taste good too. Obviously, the Scripture says we need solid food to mature, but that’s not how we got hooked. Our God offers, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” (Ps 34:8) He wouldn’t offer if He knew it didn’t taste good.
The fruit of the Spirit, “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (Gal 5:22-23), go down easy! Who doesn’t like fruit? Our life is recognized and marked by whether or not there’s good fruit (Luke 6:44). So go ahead – enjoy another dessert on me, then become that dessert for someone else!
