All of us have heard the saying "When life hands you lemons make lemonade". There once was a semi popular TV show amongst the young-ins of America that stated in its show's opening song that when life hands you lemons make beef stew. This always confused me because that is not how the saying goes but it also always made me laugh. Lately I have reflected on that statement more, and more and have come up with an explanation.
When life hand us lemons this represents the trials and struggles of our lives. We then have the choice to turn that into lemonade, complaining or whining, and have a sour life, or we could take those lemons, trials, and throw them away, with the help of Jesus Christ. We then can move on to the happier, more hearty and beefy things in life, or Beef Stew! Let us look for opportunities to do this and live a happy more filling life.
