I was contemplating baking again and ingredients…
It struck me that most recipes call for both sugar and salt. They may seem to discount each other, but in reality, they add a different dimension to the taste of the finished product. They are both needed.
They remind me of the importance of adding in both truth and grace to our parenting, along with justice and mercy. Both are needed for the finished product.
It’s also interesting that most recipes call for more sugar than salt. That is a good reminder that our kids need a lot of kindness and grace, along with our doses of truth.
Children turn out well when a lot of love is poured into them. Want a sweet finished product? Add in some generous heaps of sweetness.
