Black Beans & Mixed Greens

Background Story on  the Beans

I am sure that you’ve caught on to the fact that there are a lot of beans, legumes, and rice going on here in this house.  One thing about those three items is that they are quick, inexpensive, and tasty when just the right spices are added.  It is so easy to add any vegetable to beans and rice and call it  a day.

After making sure that you have some type of added fat, such as olive oil, avocado, or butter, you have everything that you need for a healthy dinner on a tight budget.  Last week, I featured a recipe using garbanzo beans here.

Life Application

On yesterday, I went to my mom’s group.  We are currently studying the book Pierced and Embraced by Kelli Worrall.  After the holidays, we’ll be diving into the study on the book of James by Beth Moore.  The chapter of discussion yesterday was:  Sought Out and Satisfied:  The Woman at the Well.

This chapter led to a pretty good discussion, as we dived right into talking about all the labels that we give ourselves as individuals, along with the lies that Satan feeds us in regards to these labels.  Jesus made a special trip to meet this woman whose mind was set to fulfill a fleshly need: thirst.  Little did she know that she would receive the everlasting water of life:  Jesus himself.
