John Bradshaw - Do You Like Cilantro?
I had someone ask me recently if I like cilantro. In the United States the leaves and stalk of cilantro, the dried seeds are called coriander. He asked me if I thought cilantro tasted like soap.
I thought that was weird, but people who don't like it often say it tastes like soap or bugs, which is interesting in that the word coriander comes from the Greek word "Chorus" which means bed bug. Research suggests a dislike for coriander might be hereditary, genetic, which means that whereas I like it, some people might never.
Now, thank God, heredity doesn't have to keep you out of heaven. Your father might have been a drunker, your mother might have been a mean old thing, but you don't have to be.
Second Corinthians 5:17 says "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature". No matter your hang up, that by the grace of God a new creature is what you may be. I'm John Bradshaw, for It Is Written.
