A Recipe We Want to Avoid!

I am an extremely blessed man! One of my blessings is that I have a wife who enjoys cooking - and I know God put us together because she is married to a man who allows her to use her talents because I enjoy eating! We are a perfect team. However, there is a recipe that I have watched come together in churches, and it never turns out good - not under any circumstance! I was reading a book and found this… so original, yet so true, so I wanted to put this in a blog for us to ponder over and guard against!
