June 28 – UN Says Eat Insects

A new United Nations report, Future Prospects for Food and Feed Security". says it is important we eat insects to help the Earth. It gave three reasons why we should be adding insects to our diet. The first is they are good for our health. "Insects are healthy, nutritious alternatives to mainstream staples such as chicken, pork, beef and even fish." The second reason is they are better for the environment than breeding cows, sheep, and other animals. Finally, "insect farming" would help millions of poor families around the world eat and start a small business. But here is another suggestion for a healthy diet. Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” In other words, make Bible reading a part of our spiritual diet. There we learn that in God’s eyes we are spiritual paupers. But there we also learn of His grace and willingness to cleanse, forgive and fit us for heaven. What a meal!
