“It’s too good to be true.”
We’ve heard it.
We’ve said it.
We understand the meaning ~
we’re either skeptical, or about to receive
an unbelievable bargain or blessing.
Years ago, when I made a committment to healthier eating,
I wasn’t aware how much it would cost me.
At the time, I didn’t imagine I’d end up paying $4
for a loaf of whole grain, preferably sprouted, bread.
So, when I found wheat bread for only $2 a loaf,
it seemed too good to be true.
Only two bucks?
I was seriously thinkin’ about stocking up.
Until I turned the loaf over and read the label.
See the third ingredient?
High fructose corn syrup.
It was only one of the three sugars used to make this
“healthy” wheat bread.
I paid $4 for the loaf with less sugar and higher protein.
That’s why there are so many
warnings to read the fine print.
We don’t need any unexpected surprises in life.
We don’t want to find out later that
something we thought was
good for us,
I’m so glad there’s
no fine print in the Bible.
If the Bible says something is good for us,
If the Bible says something is bad for us,
If the Bible says something is going to happen,
If the Bible says something won’t happen,
The Lord cannot lie,
His promises are
The bargain bread disappointed me,
but the Bible never has.
