Don’t Burn Down The House!

So, maybe I have the reputation for burning dinner. Maybe the chard black kettle in the sink was my fault…

Or it was…

Minus one incident, I have now gone a year…Yes! A whole year without burning breakfast, lunch, or dinner.(minus one incident) Praise Yahweh!!!

*Update: Sadly, I burnt dinner again. ( But that was THIS year, right?)*

Am I now free from being known as the dinner burner?


It’s not that I’m a bad cook. I’ve been cooking since I could walk. But, as many of you know…it just happens.

Your cooking this delicious meal, and something runs out of water…whether you realize it or not…you then have a smoky problem.

So, I may never burn food again, but I can never erase the memories of scrubbing chared pots and pans and inventing ‘the burnt remains’ air fragrance, that filled our house continually.

I may be a little dramatic, but the truth is…

#1 Don’t burn dinner

#2 You are remembered for everything you do, whether it is bad or good…even if you change.

Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.” ~Proverbs 20:11


“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.” ~Proverbs 22:1

The Bible says a lot about character, because it is important. As a follower
of Christ, we are His representatives.

It is important to have good character…To be known for good things… To show the love of Yahweh.

We must realize that even the smallest things, like burning dinner or leaving your coat on the floor, make a big difference.

Each thing that we do, whether it is good or bad, can have a lasting affect on our lives, and the lives of others.

Be of good character. Be a worthy representative of Christ in all that you do.

P.S. This is a dramatized lesson. No houses or else, were ever burnt down…or ever will…I hope.

So remember, whether you burn dinner a little or a lot, good character is important, in every thing you do.

~Sweet Blessings to you!!!~

  1. This is a great post! I never thought that burning dinner could be a lesson learned from the Bible. All the things we do are seen by God whether good or bad. Lately, I’ve been working on having a better character and letting what I do glorify Christ. 😊 Blessings to you!! 💮

  2. This is so true, but we need to remember that we are not perfect either. We must do our absolute best to live out God’s word, but we must also keep in mind that we will unintentionally fall sometimes too. 🙂 He doesn’t expect perfection, but we must always strive to be the best versions of ourselves. Great post!!!

  3. 🌸It’s true that we all make mistakes, but we should strive for perfection. He wouldn’t have told us so, if He didn’t want us to.
     “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” ~Matthew 5:48🌻
