You are not a good cake if everything in your life is sweet.
Pastor Rick Warren uses a good analogy in baking a cake. When you bake a cake, you’ll need flour, raw eggs, baking powder, oil, sugar, salt, oil, flavoring. Any of those things by themselves doesn’t really taste good.
Have you ever tasted raw flour? Cooking oil? None of those things on their own taste good.
There are a lot of things in our lives that are difficult to swallow. Not all things in our lives are good but they all WORK TOGETHER for good. And when all those elements are put together just like the elements of baking cake it produces a cake and the cake is very good.
God wants to bake a cake in our lives, and he wants to take all the circumstances even the ones that are distasteful and bitter and he wants to work them TOGETHER.
Romans in the bible affirms this in the verse, "We know that God causes all things to work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose.”
