are you a picky eater?

 I know that I’m a bit of a strange bird: I go to weird places and enjoy the experience, I do some crazy things and think about it later, I find it to be alot of fun to try new and unusual sports, etc.  Furthermore, I love to explore culinary adventures.  There’s this bald guy on TV who goes to some really strange places and eats food that is nothing less than thoroughly bizarre – I like watching him because he challenges me to push the envelope with trying new things to eat.  My latest claim to fame is eating a bug off the fender of one of our vehicles in Angola last year (that was on the heels of the bugs I ate with my friends in Cambodia).  ANYWAYS, my point is that my parents raised me to eat and “like” all foods.  When I was growing up, we weren’t allowed to say that we didn’t like a certain food.  We always had to try a teaspoon & omit the subsequent critique ,)

So this got me to thinking about how I perceive people.  If I can enjoy such a wide array of food options, why not let God develop a love in me for a wide array of people.   Today, I felt that God challenged me to be less picky and finicky about people and to love them with less criticisms and pre-requisites.  Perhaps you’re really good at loving a wide variety of people – please pray for me that I would continue to get better at loving people and being less picky.  thanks muchos 🙂

  1. I am an adventurous eater too. I haven’t met a food that I wasn’t willing to try. Yet.

    Is the baldy you’re talking about Andrew Zimmern? I’ve watched a few of his shows online. You are pretty game to eat a bug off a fender. I would give that a miss! I’ve eaten bugs, but in restaurant settings.

    I think the biggest thing about accepting people that are different is to find wonder in their differences and also be patient. It’s hard to be patient with people that are ignorant or hateful though. Maybe we should just eat those people?

  2. I’VE THOGHT ON THIS SUBJECT LONG TIME YEARS IN FACT AND I THINK IT IS PAUL WROTE SOMETHING LIKE( MY OWN WORDS) TO LOVE EVERYONE BUT NOT EMBRACE THIER WRONG BEHAVIORS…SEE 1COR.5:9-10; 11:19…EPH.5:11. HEY SARAH CAN YOU EXPOUND ON THESE SCRIPTURES FOR US ?
