I have a tender emotional Heart. I always have and always will. God gave me that sensitivity and its up to me to learn how to use it correctly. In the book ( “Emotional Purity”) it talks about women with tender hearts not guarding then appropriately and them becoming calloused mostly because we give our hearts away so easily.
“We not only give out hearts away- sometimes we actually steal the hearts of the men around us” Me a heart stealer HAHAHA I laughed at the Author but continued to read with an open mind.
It was saying that basically you defraud people when you use them or cheat them out of something they need to save for someone else.
Now heres where it gets funny.
I was telling a fellow student this to which they replied.
Sarah you are defrauding multiple men at this college with your cooking. You can steal a heart with food. You are taking parts of their marriage from them. Food causes an intimate connection. what would your future husband think about you feeding and taking care of so many people espically boys. What happens when “so and so’s” wife makes him chicken alfredo and he is forced to lie because yours is better.
Your food is like sex sarah and you are causing men to stumble…..SAY WHAT
I couldn’t stop laughing at her but she was dead serious.
I wish I could keep writing about the conversation but it ended there. I really have no desire to share with anyone about what is going on in my life and how the book is helping/ rocking my world because of ignorant people like this. We need to love people as Brothers and Sisters in Christ and put our own agendas and feelings aside. Sometimes WE (myself included) make tiny things incredibly big in our little Christian Culture world. Tonight was crazy crazy extreme. My food isn’t causing anyone to stumble. In fact it blesses me more than I ever thought and God continues to use food and fellow ship to bless others around me.
Good night 🙂
