It was a Super Bowl Sunday years ago and I had invited a few friends to watch it with me. I bought chips. sodas, popcorn, and told them I would make chili- a soup with ground beef and beans. My friends arrived and we were all set for some fun watching American football.
It came time to eat the chili. One of my friends was the first to try it and he had a look of dismay in his eyes. He asked me, “are these peanuts?” I asked why. He told me they were hard and crunchy. So I tried some and found out what he was talking about. The bean were not soft.
Realizing the chili was a no go I called for delivery pizzas. My friends asked me if I soaked the beans in water. I told them I had not and asked if I was supposed to. The chili was called Matt’s peanut chili.
In my defense the beans did not tell me they needed to be soaked in water. How was I to know? 🙂
It may surprise you to know that I am not known as a great cook. lol
People know us by what they see us do, how we treat them, and how we make them feel.
Jesus said in John 15:
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
How can people tell if we belong to Jesus? By the way we treat them and each other.
Thank you for reading. God Bless
