This post was inspired by my 18 year old daughter and her friend, who each had ideas on what I should blog about – and it ended up being grilled cheese and pride. So, after much prayer, here is what the Lord has for me to share.
A comparison table between grilled cheese and pride – a tongue-in-cheek post:
|an ancient food and popular across most cultures||an ancient struggle, beginning in The Garden and common to all cultures of man|
|a simple food||as simple as desiring to place yourself above God|
|takes on many forms||shows itself in many forms|
|called by different names in different cultures||the secular world calls it by many different names, most of which reject the sin aspect|
|can be disguised by various additions or specialty items||can be hidden in our hearts and disguised as something good for our self worth|
|must be swallowed to have nutritional benefit||must be swallowed to have character growth and personal maturity|
|heat melts the cheese||heat brings out the full blown character flaws|
|cheese hidden sandwiched between 2 slices of bread||pride hidden sandwiched between our human frailty and our longing to be considered more than we are|
I was wondering how you would pull it off, Kate! This was an excellent way to compare the two!
I love the statement about being disguised as something good for our self worth. Many times pride has disguised itself in me in the opposite way- I’ve been guilty for not being or doing something because I thought it would look prideful- when really it was derailing my self confidence. And, I’ve been puffed up many times only to have His Precious Hand gently and firmly squeeze it out of me- hard lessons for sure.
Thanks, Nancy!! I was wondering how I was going to pull it off myself!! 😀
you are so awesome! 🙂 good post!
😀 thanks, sweetie!
How clever. I don’t think I ever could have come up with this wonderful comparison chart. Well Done Kate.
Thanks, Elizabeth. It was lots of fun!
Wow! You did well! Great comparisons and very thought-provoking.
Thanks, Jen! I really had a lot of fun doing it!
Thanks, Val, and thanks for the visit!
What a funny way to drive home your point, Kate. I never knew there were so many correlations between grilled cheese and pride. I love grilled cheese but rarely indulge in it. And I hate pride but often indulge in it. How’s that for another comparison. Ugh! Thanks for the gentle nudge to kick that pride to the curb!
Ahhh…another comparison! 😉 Thanks for stopping by, Beth. Hoping we can get to know one another through our blogs!
Aww, nice ^_^ Feeling hungry 😛
