Have you ever been hungry? Suppose, in your hungered state, you come to my house and ask for something to eat. You’d likely be upset if I offer you a cup of flour, a spoon full of salt, or a spoon full of baking soda. How about a half of a cup of Crisco, chased down by a cup of buttermilk to drink? Surely, that would taste terrible! Maybe you’d be happier if we mix them all together and make biscuits. Now that’s more like it!
G.K. Chesterton once said:
“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”
I’m reading a book that a friend of mine gave me entitled Forever His by Marvin Moore. This book is all about the practical application of Romans and teaches us how to have a joyful and unbroken relationship with Jesus Christ. In the second chapter, Mr. Moore describes something that I’ve been feeling for some time. He writes:

I recently received a question in one of our online communities regarding the lack of credit given to creation by the majority of scientists.
Right now, I am 34,000 feet above ground looking out of my window, flying on American Airlines to Fresno. I am very thankful that the laws of physics are constant. For a brief moment, I am picturing what I would feel if this plane suddenly dropped out of the sky like a rock! Maybe that is why I have to keep my seat belt fastened; it’s not turbulence, it’s that the laws of physics might change!
During a Home School Family Camp this September, I had the opportunity to play paintball with the campers. After several rounds of capture the flag, team elimination and just plain fun, we ended the afternoon with a game called “Moose.” In Moose, two people are chosen to be “eternal” (they cannot be eliminated), and they have to take out all the other players before the game is over. It was fun when I was “eternal” because I knew that I could never be taken out. Even if the other player hit me, it didn’t matter—I was not going to stop until they were “dead.”
This past Tuesday, while my wife was at the grocery store with our girls, my 7-year-old daughter saw a bag of lemons and asked if she could have a lemonade stand to help raise money for a puppy that they saw in a pet store. My wife thought it was a good idea, but said that the girls would have to use their own money to purchase the ingredients and do all the work of making the lemonade. Friday night came around and all the plans that we had worked on for the week started into motion. The girls washed, heated, softened, cut and juiced 40 lemons. I thought their little arms were going to fall off!
