Breakfast Verses

What does God think about breakfast? Well, let’s find out…

What to drink? Coffee…black:

Isaiah 5:20 (NASB)
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

In case you missed it, he’s saying that it’s evil to make dark things light by adding milk to coffee, and also adding sweet sugar to bitter coffee. It’s just supposed to be black.

And what to eat? Grits…salted with butter (oil):

Leviticus 2:13-16 (NASB)
Every grain offering of yours…you shall season with salt…you shall bring fresh…grits…for the grain offering of your early ripened things. You shall then put oil on it…The priest shall offer… its grits and its oil…as an offering by fire to the LORD.

Moral of the story? You should drink your coffee black and since God likes his grits with salt and oil (and what better oil for grits is there than butter?), you should have them that way also.

Oh, the other moral? Don’t take verses out of context. You can come up with all sorts of crazy things like this!

  • Jason and Nicholas will be excited about the grits part…but the coffee – no thanks either way!

  • Awesome.

  • I’ve always known not to put anything in coffee. Give it to me strong and black.

    Oh — and whose job in the married couple does God think it is to brew the coffee? The man’s, of course. There’s a whole book in the Bible about that — He-brews. 🙂
