While this could probably be added as an edit to my previous post about lessons during deleavening, it is really a post-deleavening lesson, so I will make it a separate entry…
My children (who seem to be paying more attention this year) have been remarking frequently how good all this unleavened stuff tastes. In particular, they were impressed when Mom made unleavened pancakes. Now, my wife’s pancakes are normally very good, anyway (in my opinion, at least, and I’m the one she works to please!), and she doesn’t do anything “special” to turn them into unleavened pancakes. She simply uses her usual recipe but leaves out the leavening agents.
Well, my kids thought the unleavened, flatter-than-usual pancakes were fantastic and liked them even better than the usual leavened variety. And I have to admit, they were pretty good. All of this brought to my mind a neat little verse:
“Oh, taste, and see that the LORD is good;
Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!”
I hope that sometime during these last few “days of flat stuff” that we have left, you, too, will taste some particularly delectable unleavened treat and think to yourself, “Oh, taste, and see that the LORD is good!”
Have a great Sabbath!
