Chinese Food

I believe that Chinese food is one of the best inventions of man. No other type of food allows you to say things like moo goo gai pan or kung pow; they even have a dish named after a general. And who doesn’t like the thought of dipping an egg roll in duck sauce? To top things off, at the end of the meal your fortune is delivered via cookie.

The only problem with Chinese food, as the classic stereotype goes, is that, even though you eat until you feel like you are about to pop, you will be hungry again as soon as you get home. I just had a big portion of the General Tso, but typing these types of chicken is making me hungry already.

Every time you feel hungry it is a reminder that your body is doing its job; digestion has occurred. In other words, hunger is a good thing. Some people lose their appetite for days or weeks at a time, and that is an indicator that something is wrong.

I worry about people who have no heavenly hunger. Jesus told His disciples that those who “hunger and thirst after righteousness” would be blessed. Righteous living should be the Chinese food on the Christian menu: consume it until you are stuffed, and an hour later, consume some more.

Christian, have you lost your appetite for the things of God? If so, perhaps you need to see a Physician.

“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.”
Matthew 5:6
