The story is told of a youth watching his grandmother bake a cake. He watched her closely and noticed one of the main ingredients was soured milk. “Yuk,” he thought, “that cake must taste awful!” When supper was completed and desert served, the boy was surprised that this was the best cake he had ever eaten. Even though the boy did not fully understand what had taken place – he learned that sour milk mixed with sweet milk makes cake taste better.

Christians, too, may think that our “cake of life” is ruined when the “sour milk” of discouragement and failure is stirred into the mixture. But remember, when the “sour milk” of discouragement is mixed with the “sweet milk” of God’s word, there is produced the delicious “just deserts” of the Christian life. James says it this way, “Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into manifold temptations; Knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience. And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing” (Jam. 1:2-4).

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
