    Default SPEAKING OF CORN

    Speaking of Corn:

    So, as I’m having my morning devotional, I begin to read about when Jesus and the disciples were walking along one Sabbath and the disciples began to pick ears of corn and eat thereof.

    Mark 2:23) And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn. 24) And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? 25) And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him? 26) How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him? 27) And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: 28) Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

    So, me being me, I began to wonder:“What kind of corn were they eating?” There are numerous varieties of corn, and I do mean NUMEROUS……….

    Types of Corn, Different Corn Types, Types of...


    Anyway, I figure that it was at, or very near harvest time, for it would make sense that the corn was mature enough to consume/digest, yet not so mature as to have become hard as is corn kernels used for livestock feed. I would like to think it was a variety of sweet corn, but they may not have had such a variety in those days. It could have been field corn, yet that is mostly used for livestock feed. So, I suspect it was some variety used for grinding into flour for making bread and such.

    Then, me being me, I began to wonder: “Is there a spiritual message” contained in this Scriptural account involving the corn?”

    The most obvious message (of course) is the message Jesus taught about the Sabbath being created for man, and not man for the Sabbath, and that He IS the Lord of the Sabbath.

    But, see, I’m still thinking of the corn. So I gave it some more thought and then began to wonder if I substituted the “Word of God” for “corn,” what would the message be with regards to “corn?”

    Well, there were the disciples, gathered together on the Sabbath, fellowshipping with one another, and in the presence of Jesus, in His fellowship, and they were dining on the Word of God. That brought a smile to my face, because is this not what we should all do?

    As I said, me being me, it just seemed to be a message of fellowship and feasting, and what better to feast on than the Word of God? So, maybe, this Sunday, I’ll take an ear of corn to church with me and lay it on the alter. Or, maybe just lay it on the table in the foyer, and wait for folks to ask me what in the world did I do that for?

    Anyway, me being me…………..

    In the high tongue of english corn can mean any of the grains. The corn of the Bible and other ancient literary masterpieces likely isn't about the yellow summertime veggie we think of today. Corn as we know it today is maize, which is from the Americas, and likely wasn't known about in the Old World until well into the AD.

    Hey, "you being you", I like your spiritual analogy. And anytime the Word of God can be used in different ways/pictures, it is all good.
