|Would that be with peanut butter or cheese?|
There was a time when God tested me and said to me, "take Isaac, your only son, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah and offer him as a burnt offering on the mountain that I shall show you." I had a choice to complete the task or to refuse to comply with God's orders. I was resigned that I would loose my only son. And then the inevitable happened. God provided a substitute. A perfect ram that would take the place of the offering. I realized that the God who called me had validated my existence by virtue of my faith. A faith born not out of myself - for my spirit was bound up to give up whatever and whoever I love. A faith not from within but from without.
"Son," I said, "Are you in a mood for Lamb Chop?"
Nowadays, I am just content to cook crepes for my neighbors.
