Green Pepper, Tomato, Girl or Boy?

Green Pepper, Tomato, Girl or Boy?

It never ceases to amaze me…the thought process of a child. I was cutting a green pepper and when I started to cut out the seeds, I noticed another tiny pepper inside. The green pepper had a baby inside.

I gently removed the baby pepper and showed it to my daughter. She was beyond thrilled that the pepper had a baby. She had endless questions as to why, how…

I started slicing a juicy tomato. My daughter watched closely as I sliced. She then chimes “Is there a baby in the tomato?” I reply “No honey”.

Her response: “It must be a boy!”

It’s all about perspective.

I don’t know about you, but I could certainly benefit from seeing another perspective…other than my own.

As I was reading Proverbs this morning, I took a moment to dissect a verse.

Proverbs 5:21 says “For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He ponders all his paths.” (NKJV)

When I have read this verse before, I never noticed that “He” was capitalized. Here are the things that stood out to me as I studied this verse.

According to the Blue Letter Bible (online study tool) which gives the Hebrew and Greek definition for the words.

Way = “way, road, distance, journey, manner”

Before = “be in front of”,

Ponders =”to weigh, make level, balance”

Paths = “entrenchment, track” *entrenchment is a ditch of protection

I am not a Greek scholar but from reading and studying this verse…

My journey is in front of God and He is leveling my path.

I encourage you today…God sees you, your life…it’s in front of Him. He will level and balance your path if you allow Him to.

Thanks for reading! EnJOY your day!
