So I made dinner. This is something I do… usually in the evenings. This seems about the right time.
As I’m digging right in Andrew is waiting for his to cool a bit. He looks over at me and says, Wow, my wife is amazing; she has a fireproof mouth. That woman can take a scoop full of Lava, put it in her mouth, swallow, and doesn’t even know it’s warm.
Yes, I laughed. I’m the same way with tea. Andrew has to let everything cool??????
What’s so wrong with piping hot? Be brave.
When I read that last line to him he said, let me see you do that with burning hot coals.
Now that’s just silly talk. Who eats coals?
Apparently, I misheard him. What he said was, I’d like to see you do that with something cold.
He can drink slushies in the Winter and not even feel it. If I eat icecream in the Summertime I shiver. Then I have to eat my fries to warm up!
The Reward of Kindness
“If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.”Proverbs 25:21-22
“As metals are melted by heaping coals upon them, so is the heart softened by kindness.”Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary
“…and the Lord shall reward thee: with good things, for all the good done to thine enemy, whether it has the desired effect on him or not; or whether he rewards thee or not; see Romans 12:19-20.”Gills Exposition of the Entire Bible
