Life is like a casserole! -JAM

This is Just-A-Minute. Everyone has troubles: big troubles, little troubles, simple and complicated troubles, financial, marital, health troubles. Troubles come in all sizes, colors and shapes. Forrest Gump said life was like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’ve got until you bite into it. That might do for Forrest but for most of us there is plenty of bitter to go with the sweet and a box of chocolates is always sweet! So I offer another metaphor: “life is like a casserole!” Casseroles are the king of church pot lucks and I’ve been to my share. The trouble with casseroles is you don’t know what’s in them until it’s too late! Underneath that appealing layer of cheese or crushed crackers might lurk green peas, asparagus or worse! When it comes to handling whatever life serves, don’t risk the casserole; instead as David said, “taste and see that the Lord is good!”
