Monday devotional discipline: Good in my world is real because God is good. My hope is in good and so I seek for God.
Philippians 4:8 (ESV) Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.about these things.
I am alive in this world. My body perceives things, my mind ponders them and my spirit/will decides what to do. This morning I decided to eat some more Christmas chocolate. It was good.
I also tried to remember that “cocoa’s antioxidants — called flavonoids — coax the body into making more nitric oxide, which relaxes the blood vessels.”*
That’s good. Chocolate is good to taste and can be good for the heart. I could go into the problems of fat and sugar concoctions which help deliver those flavonoids, but it’s Monday, so I’ll just stick to observing the good!
Cocoa in chocolate is Good. God made cocoa. Thanks God!!!
