In Proverbs 15:17 Solomon says, “Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.” When the Israelites were slaves in Egypt, they ate vegetables such as cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions, and garlic (Numbers 4:5).
A thought for today
Hear me when I call, O God, of my righteousness thou host enlarged me when I was in distress have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? How long will ye love vanity and seek after lessing?
