WELL WORTH THE EFFORT
by Golden Keyes Parsons
|Recipe for Coconut Cream pie|
When our twin grandsons were born, I stayed with my daughter for six weeks. One afternoon I declared, “I think I’ll make a chocolate pie.”
She said, “You’ll have to go to the store. I don’t have any chocolate pudding mix.”
“You don’t have to have instant pudding to make chocolate pie.”
I served a homemade chocolate for dessert that evening.
“Mom! I had forgotten how good homemade pie tasted. This is worth the effort.” My child had grown so accustomed to a shortcut, pleasant tasting substitute for chocolate pie that she had forgotten what the genuine article tasted like.
It is hard work, and it does take time, but let’s taste of the Lord, and see that He is good. Maybe we have forgotten how good being in His presence can be. Just like that homemade pie, it’s well worth the effort!
“O taste and see that the Lord is good.” (Psalm 34:8)
Dare to take God seriously!
