A Parable about Reading Scripture

What can I compare to reading the Bible? It is like a famous and talented chef, who went to a city and opened up a restaurant. Every day he would prepare unique, delicious, and exquisitely prepared meals for free to all who would eat them.

Exquisite Meal

The rich of the city never went, since they were always full on their own food.

Of those who recognized the generosity and value of the chef’s meals were three people:

One man would come every day and take a tiny fork-full of the meal and swallow it without chewing, and then would rush on to his day’s work.

One woman would only come once in a while, but when she came she would eat as much food as she could. She always thanked and complimented the chef and say how much she loved eating his food, but then would disappear for a long time before she came to his restaurant to gorge herself again.

Finally, one man would come for a meal every day, and take his time eating the meal and tasting and savouring every bite, and getting to know the chef personally, then would go on to his day’s work with the energy it gave him.

Now, who do you think the chef appreciated the most? Let them who have a heart to obey, obey.
