A World Without Coffee and Chocolate

Matthew 4:4, Man does not live by bread alone, shortages of chocolate and coffee
"I wouldn't want to live in a world without coffee."

This was the reaction of one man to a recent report that coffee could be in short supply in ten years due to “heavy rain, long drought, and insect infestations linked to climate change.”* The report went on to say that global warming could also make parts of Africa too hot to grow cocoa.

Is chocolate or coffee in your "essential food group," or does some other food seem essential to your well-being...sweet tea, diet coke, milk, beef, vanilla...?
    The God who created all of these foods for our enjoyment tells us there's one "food" essential to our well-being:

    “Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4

    Without God's Word, we miss the whole meaning and purpose of life. Make sure it's part of your "diet" today!

    4. I have to tell you Gail, as I read this I'm drinking my first cup of coffee for the morning and I have a spoonful of cocoa in it. I do drink it probably in excess, but have to say, if I was stranded on an island until the Lord comes, I'd rather have my bible than coffee. ~ Abby
