We might pick out our theology as we do our watermelons. We thump it, smell it, feel it and check the picked stem area. Once we have just the right one and we are satisfied, we take it home and get ready to enjoy it.
What we find with watermelons can also be what we find with theology. It may be a little green or over ripe, have little taste and not be sweet enough or too juicy. And like theology we serve up watermelon and start picking out the seeds with a fork and spitting out the others. That’s the way one eats watermelon. It is also the correct way to consume theology.
Then, there are Seedless Watermelons. Look out on this one. What could be right about a seedless anything? We might just buy it, slice it, eat and think no further. It might be a good reason to look carefully at seedless theology. Another reason, and a good one, is that watermelon taste like fish and I don’t eat or care for watermelon or fish.
I’m headed over to other side of the Pond to have some Cuban Coffee, fresh Peach Pie and water Roz’s watermelon plants.
