Morning Thought: Have you had Vietnamese cooking? It’s one of my favourites. The Vietnamese often use fish sauce in their dishes. Fish sauce stinks. No wonder, it’s usually made with fermented anchovies. Fish sauce on its own is quite repulsive. Yet, if it’s mixed with other ingredients, it heightens the meal’s flavour. It really makes the food taste good. Difficult times in life are like fish sauce. On their own they smell bad, but together with God they improve the character and strength of your life. “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all” (2 Corinthians 4:17, NIV).
