Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

How to make sure your child won't become a picky eater?

Recommended Posts

Food is one blessing of God that we always be thankful for. So it really pains me when I see people wasting food because millions of people around the world are starving to death. I notice that my nephews and nieces are picky eaters. Some of them don't eat vegetables while others don't eat meat. I do not want to have children who are picky eaters and disrespect God's grace.

 

I see some parents raised their children well to be not picky eaters. How can I have kids who are not picky eaters. How can I have kids who are happy that they have something to eat instead of a someone who complains and begs for a junk food instead?

On the one hand you may not be able to raise all of your children to not be picky eaters. But on the other there are ways to avoid certain aversions to certain foods. For us we hardly ever have junk food in the home, so when our kids want a snack they will either have an apple or carrot. Junk food is basically just once in a while at a large gathering.

 

That being said, I, myself have never cared for tomatoes, mushrooms, most nuts (pecans, walnuts, cashews, etc...), and some kinds of fruits and vegetables, and don't really fault my kids if they don't like any of those things. After all, it would be kind of hypocritical of me, right? Now we do at least have them try certain things, and if we are at a party we just tell them if they don't like something don't put it on their plate. That way it won't get thrown away by them and someone else who enjoys those things may do so.
