When you’re on the road, trying to find food without leaven is a little more difficult than at home. Though each meal took a little more planning on a trip we took recently, that was time to reflect on God’s ways and the reasons for following them. Each menu decision was flavored with love for God, and God’s love for us. We wanted to skip leaven as He instructed because He loves us so much. We get to love Him back a little by slight diet changes. He dies a tortured, painful bloody death on an execution stake and we return a tiny bit of that love by eating crackers. What a deal.
Of course, it’s far more difficult to remove the sin, symbolized by the leaven, than it is to find a restaurant that isn’t centered around leavened bread. It’s a little hard to eat a sandwich without the bread. But a week making decisions about bread translates to keeping the removal of sin in focus too. And it’s a great kick start to a habit of removing a particular sin.
Subway has salads 🙂
Sure. And McDonald’s has chicken nuggets and ice cream. But you still have to give meals more thought.
Actually, you want to be careful with the chicken nuggets. The breading in them can have yeast extract and stuff. I was just correlating your thought of “sandwiches with no bread” which can be turned into salad at Subway 🙂
Yes. Having to be careful, which makes me more aware of God’s Word on a minute by minute basis, brings His lessons home in a fresh and new way.
