We ate dinner at Subway last night. Rachel and I both enjoy their subs and the health value compared to many fast food places. We ordered our usual – 2 6″ subs, one veggie one turkey, both with all the veggies except jalapeños and banana peppers.
I was surprised to find out that “all the veggies” doesn’t actually mean ALL the veggies. Both times the sandwich artist skipped right over the spinach. Both times I asked for spinach, too, and both times she obliged without question or dirty look.
I called the main office of the local owner-operator and was told that spinach is a “premium vegetable;” that it does not cost more, but must be asked for specifically.
This got me thinking of what God offers us with eternal life. Is it ALL included, or do you suppose there are premium ingredients that God expects us to ask for specifically?
