Taste

It is fair to say that a person who gets food without taste may be better off than one who gets no food
Living with no flavor gets easier each day, especially when it was a choice
When taste controls your very existense it can even be the best choice
You can go years with no flavor or scent of it and each day grows simpler
The mind grows clearer about other things that others consider important
The desire stops haunting your every spare moment
After all, flavor isn’t a need anymore than a million variations of color
Dreams of a meal come, but grow more and more faint no matter how glorious
Was it ever really good
Those who control the meal control you less and less with each passing day
The urge to steal a taste or force open the gate to it reduces to almost nothing
You laugh to remember
They made you feel small for asking
They made you feel disloyal for not
They were hurt as you quit asking because they just knew you couldn’t do without
Jealous and sure you must be eating elsewhere
What joy the flavorless is
But return to even the flavor of a cracker can sends you tumbling back to a world of forgotten joy
Controlling, unnecessary, awful joy

The body of Christ will never grow if the Pastor is the one using his gifts to MAKE IT grow through some cool program or inspiring turn of a phrase.
