This morning I mixed my coffee and sugar into hot water and added some milk. Because I wanted to taste something good.

I could have used leftover dishwater, I suppose, but I wasn’t interested in tasting something less than good. Far less. Not at all.

Jesus seems to rebuke Peter for tasting something far less than good. Listen:

“Thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of Satan” (Mark 8:33).


(Would I want Jesus to set me straight like that?)

What am I choosing to taste?

Oh, in case you’re wondering how the title relates, here’s my translation from the Spanish:

“You don’t put your sight on the things of God, but on those of men.”

Surely you could add something...
