Fast Food

My husband and I frequently eat at fast food restaurants. We’re part of the fast foods generation. My first experiences were at Carrolls Drive Inn, Dewitt, New York. His was at The Little Freezer in Oak Grove, Louisiana.

How could we know that the invention of the microwave oven would bring fast food into our kitchen? I’ve often thought about how long it must have taken to prepare foods in days of the Bible.

Sarah and Abraham prepared ‘quick’ food.

“Now the Lord appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre, while he was sitting at the tent door in the heat of the day. When he lifted up his eyes and looked, behold, three men were standing opposite him; and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them and bowed himself to the earth, and said, ‘My Lord, if now I have found favor in Your sight, please do not pass Your servant by. Please let a little water be brought and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree; and I will bring a piece of bread, that you may refresh yourselves; after that you may go on, since you have visited your servant. And they said, ‘So do, as you have said.’ So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah, and said, ‘Quickly, prepare three measures of fine flour, knead it and make bread cakes.’ Abraham also ran to the herd, and took a tender and choice calf and gave it to the servant, and he hurried to prepare it. He took curds and milk and the calf which he had prepared, and placed it before them; and he was standing by them under the tree as they ate (Genesis 18:1-8 NASB).”

Hungry? Jesus is the bread of life!
