They’ve gone from being downright deadly to dazzling and delightful. Eggs were all but banned by dietitians and doctors alike; however, I recently heard a person should eat four eggs a week to help ward off on the onset of diabetes.
Eggs have been a topic of discussion and an element of speech ever since the first person asked: “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?”
How many of these egg-laced phrases have you heard?
- He egged me on.
- I have egg on my face.
- There’s an egghead.
- Boy, he really laid an egg.
- Be careful, talking with him is like walking on egg shells.
- Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.
Most of the egg-centric philosophy above is pretty good advice; however, I have to question the context of the last one. It’s wise to put all of your eggs in one basket when that basket is Jesus.
If you remember the exchange that Jesus had with Peter, you might agree with me: Jesus said to the Apostles, “Do you also want to go away?” But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God (John 6:67-69).”
When it comes to the basket of eternal life, I hope you will come to know and to believe that Jesus is the Son of the living God.
