The theology of the chocolate sampler

One day you bring me a large, beautiful box of chocolates. There are all kinds, too, every type imaginable: some with nuts or cookies or caramel; some with raisins or cherries or other fruits; some with dark or light or white chocolate or a mixture. It’s the wide variety that makes it so impressive – and probably expensive – gift.

But what do I do? I bite into one at a time, and not finding what I like I look for another. Not only that, but I’m rude enough to spit the candy into the trash can while you watch, and make a face of disgust. I don’t even bother tasting the white ones before throwing them away. I only like the ones with dark chocolate, I say, glaring as if I blame you for not giving me just those.

I know what you are thinking…what in the world does this have to do with the Word? This is a great article written by Gary over at Gary Shogren’s Blog. As you read this article, you see what a great analogy Gary makes between the rude eater of chocolate given as a gift, and the gifts that God gives us that we are all to quick to dismiss at times. This is not in reference to spiritual gifts, although those would apply to this article as well.
