Sunday School Lesson in a Sandwich

A few days ago, Eileen and I were enjoying peanut butter and honey sandwiches in the woods. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to make me think of the most off the wall things, and as I thought about honey, I thought about God’s promise to Moses to deliver him into a land of milk and honey. Why milk and honey? Why not water and wine? Why not abundant vegetation for the people and pasture for the cattle? Why not any other of the abundant products of the area known as the “Fertile Crescent”?

Then, as I pondered on milk (which would have been delicious with the peanut butter and honey) it dawned on me. You get milk from cows, cows must have grass, grass must have water and sunshine. So, with milk you get all the other thrown in. Honey comes from bees. In order to make honey, bees need blooming vegetation, blooming vegetation also needs water, and makes its own fruit. So, once again you get so much more thrown in.

That’s the way it is with all of God’s promises. You get what is promised, but you get so much more thrown in. He really is a God Who does so much more than we can ask think or imagine (Eph 3:20).

Not a bad lesson from a sandwich, huh?
