Interested in how an almond can be both a poison and a pleasure, same as life, depending on the time we may choose in our lives?
I read an interesting great recipe blog post titled: What’s Your Poison, Almond Cookies which contained this statement which I consider to be very timely based on both today’s news or 3000 years ago.
“How has our favorite nutritious and delectable variety of nuts transformed from bitter to sweet and from poisonous to healthy?”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb to discern various timely choices we choose in life may result to either poison or please us now or in the future.
1To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; (Ecclesiastes 3:1-3)
5when men fear the heights and dangers of the road, when the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper loses its spring, and the caper berry shrivels— for then man goes to his eternal home and mourners walk streets. Ecclesiastes 12:5)
There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end, it leads to death. (Proverb 14:12)
What’s My Point?
We were all born and over time will make either wise of foolish choices according to the observations of King Solomon 3000 years ago.
Some choices will lead to death of body and/or souls as the article explained about individuals in history.
Some choices made by others may affect our Nation when we live in a Democrat Republic.
Sometimes we think we are making the right choices and as the proverb says it leads to death of body or soul.
My point is today in Congress, our legislators are making a choice to impeach President Trump despite other legislators’ warnings that it may lead to further incite more inductions that we have experiences.in the past week
In My Opinion
The almond tree has been mentioned in ancient history to either bring about poison or pleasurable cookies depending on the poison timing we choose to in an almond growth.
The USA Democrat Republic was born only 245 years ago, a relatively short span of time in recorded history of Nations, some which lived on and others died away.
Will the wise or foolish choices made today in Congress result be compared to the article the same since as making a choice to eat an almond at the wrong time or to result in a pleasurable cookie recipe made for almonds which were selected at the right time so as not to cause death.
Read the insource Links below which link the great interesting blog post which gives both an understand of history as a background to how to make great tasting cookies. Also, a post I related to that is now occurring in Congress, and another article of advice of five foolish things we do to foul up our future.
