Burned Biscuits – A lesson we all should learn.


When I was a kid, my Mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my Mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed!
All my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my Mom and ask me how my day was at school. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that ugly burned biscuit. He ate every bite of that thing…never made a face nor uttered a word about it!

When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my Mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I’ll never forget what he said, “Honey, I love burned biscuits every now and then.”

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, “Your Mom put in a hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And besides–a little burned biscuit never hurt anyone!”
As I’ve grown older, I’ve thought about that many times. Life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people.
I’m not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else. But what I’ve learned over the years is that learning to accept each other’s faults and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

And that’s my prayer for you today…that you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of God. Because in the end, He’s the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn’t a deal-breaker!

We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!
Don’t put the key to happiness in someone else’s pocket, keep it in your own.
So, please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burned one will do just fine.
Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
“Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil–it has no point”

A PICTURE OF A BELIEVER

    A PICTURE OF THE BELIEVER

PSALM 37:3

  1. The Believer’s Object of Trust – The LORD

    II Samuel 22:3 – The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.

He is my rock – a solid place.

He is my shield – my protection

He is my horn of salvation – the source that keeps.

He is my high tower – sight to see

He is my refuge – my place to run to for saftey, when hurting or questioning.

He is my Saviour – Everlasting life.

  1. The Believer’s Mode of Life – do good

Jer 21:8 – And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.

A CHOICE TO MAKE

Proverbs 6:23 – For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the WAY OF LIFE.

A path well lit leads to life

  1. The Believer’s Place of Abode – in the land

Matt. 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt and where thieves break through and steal:

Hebrews 11:8 – By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, oveyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. 9. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: 10. For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

  1. The Believer’s Certainty of Provision. – shalt be fed.

Psalm 132:13-18 – For the Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his havitation. 14. This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it. 15. I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16. I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. 17. There will I make the horn of David to bud; I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. 18. His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

Bread – cloth with salvation – filled with joy- crowned with plenty
