Jeremiah 29:17

"Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil."
Jeremiah 29:17

Truly evil food. :)  I like this... I think because it would be nice if we could be as discerning with everything as we are with food. :)  Leftovers from yesterday, sure... but the figs in the verse here are SO vile that you can't eat them.  Pizza that has been in the box so long that it has petrified... or that now-unidentifiable stuff that has taken up residence in the tupperware.  Scary.   Just think if all evil was that easy to identify... covered with mold, or utterly unappetizing.  :)  Probably not too tempting that way... but in reality, even though it might seem more desirable than that, underneath all evil is equally abhorrent.  No matter how much chocolate frosting you put on it, you can't cover up the true taste.  Don't work at getting a taste for evil.  Mold is not your friend.  Come unto God, and feast upon his love... Good is delicious, and there is no rancid aftertaste, or green fur to get used to... it makes for a much more pleasant meal.
