Yam

Because of my ugliness?
Because of my quirkiness?
But inside of me is beautiful.
But I’m rich in vitamins and minerals.

1 Samuel 16:7b (KJV)
For the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

According to dictionary, yam is a sweet potato. It is a starchy, tuberous root of any of various climbing vines of the genus Dioscorea, cultivated for food in warm regions. The inspiration “Yell At Me” making the acronym of Yam made me wonder how was it related to yell. The reason to include, “Because of my ugliness?” is in my observation of its physical characteristic, but it is rich in vitamin C, B6, B1, riboflavin, folic acid, pantothenic acid and niacin dietary fibre, potassium, manganese, calcium and minerals such as selenium, zinc and copper. So 1 Samuel 16:7b spoke to me.

A Picky Husband

Posted on
A wife seldom cooks food with oil due to her concern to eat healthily. So also seldom cook fried food. A dish of steamed tofu, steamed fish, and even baked prawn without greasing oil. Everyday, she drinks a cup of low-fat with high-calcium milk.
She is quite an opposite of her husband who loves to eat tasty food without considering whether the ingredients will affect his well-being. He hates milk and refuses to take vitamin pills. Her son states that her mum cooking deteriorates. All day, he comments the food’s taste is not salty enough and even not sour enough. Finally, he participates in the kitchen preparation. He remarks that in order to make a tasteful and refined dish, there is no need to bother whether the consumed food is harmful for the body. He even laughs her for always drinking milk, but his body is stronger than her though he smokes.
One day, his sore throat worsens a lot until he is scared causing him to stop smoking. Around one month later, he doesn’t feel well and decides to take a full body medical check up. He brings his wife along to do the same as him. One week later, the report shows his bone calcium is lacking and mild high blood pressure. It is quite a contrast with his wife whose bone calcium is high and her hereditary diabetes is under control. Ultimately, he forces himself to gulp vitamins and sometimes milk.
The moral of the story is
Stop criticising people.
Listen to advises.
Reflect your own words and actions before criticising others.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath
                                                                                                                  (James 1:19 KJV)
