go to the grocery store.

For the 18th straight month, restaurant sales were more than grocery store sales in the U.S., despite the success of cooking shows of just about every kind. 

Probably about way more than food. We often like to watch others or live through them as they work. 

My favorite analogy of the Bible is that it's a menu... you aren't supposed to memorize the menu you are supposed to read it and order the food to taste for yourself. 

I now think the analogy should change a little. The Bible is a recipe. It tells you what ingredients to go into the world to look for, how to find them, and how to mix them together for something that will satisfy not only basic needs of hunger but of finer tastes of goodness and life. 

Of course this takes work, time, effort, mystery, risk, vulnerability, and humility...
