EATING VEGETABLES FOR LOVE


When I was growing up and living at home, my parents couldn’t get me to eat vegetables for anything. They not only tried threats, they followed through. It didn’t work.


Then I met Linda, we started dating, her parents had me over for dinner. She would look at me and say, "Aren’t you going to eat your vegetables?" I would, and I wouldn’t even think about what I was doing.


Until one Sunday we went out to a buffet with my parents. We were going through the line and my plate was almost full, when Linda looked at me and said, "Aren’t you going to have a little broccoli?" Bam, on to the plate it went. As I did it, I saw my mother grab my father’s arm, HARD. I asked what was wrong. She simply said, "You’re eating vegetables." Later she told me, "I knew you were in love when you were willing to eat your vegetables for her."


Love makes us do things that we wouldn’t normally do and we don’t get burned out on doing it. We need to teach our children to love God.
