It has been around for a long time because King Henry II of England purchased over 10,000 lbs. in 1170 AD. Its natural color is white but an extract from the achiote tree is added to give it the yellow color.
It varies is flavor from mild to sharp or extra sharp. I have had some that was so sharp that I could hardly eat it.
Sharp cheddar cheese reminds me of a problem that we all encounter time and time again in life.
I have no problem in wanting to be forgiven but I do have a problem of forgiving others. One of many times my wife asked me a question and my response was sharp.
When this happens I try to go to her and apologize. I don’t just say it I mean it.
The Bible teaches us not to take every word so seriously, (Ecclesiastes 7:21). Second, it instructs us to forgive, (Matthew 5:7 & 6:12, 14, 15).
Many times I find it hard or impossible to forgive and I have to call upon God to help me, (Philippians 4:13 & Galatians 5:22, 23). Do we need to just forgive once? No the Bible says time and time again, (Matthew 17:4 &18:22).
The Bible also teaches if we are unwilling to forgive others God will not forgive us, (Mark 11:25). With Christ’s help we can become tenderhearted, merciful, forgiving and not hold grudges, (Romans 12:17, Ephesians 4:32, Colossians 3:13).
See you in Church next Sunday. Brother J
