One of the great things of summertime is homegrown tomatoes. Yum, I love them sliced, diced and juiced. Are they a fruit or a vegetable? Who cares.. it's just juicy goodness from God's garden.
Tomatoes have a special spot of their own in my memory bank. When I was a kid, I sold tomatoes and a few other veggies down by the road in front of our house. It was a pretty sweet business deal. My parents grew the tomatoes, picked them, and hauled them to the road in a wheelbarrow. Then I set them on display on my table and weighed and sold them by the pound. I borrowed my uncle's scales from across the street. Yes, I got to keep all the money. Kids don't know what 'overhead costs' are.. lol. It was good practice with currency, customer service and perseverance in the heat.
Proverbs 16;11 ''Honest scales and balances belong to the Lord; all the weights in the bag are of his making.'' Proverbs 11;1 ''The Lord detests dishonest scales, but accurate weights find favor with him.''
May we always get what we pay for and not be fools for Satan's cheating schemes.
