Example: Partner A sees that partner B has yellow in his shirt, so Partner A has to come up with a food of that color and say it to their partner. ‘Lemon…..” she says, waiting on a response. Partner B sees that Partner A has on green, so he says “turnips” … which results in a nasty combination.

Possible Devotional follow-up
Athletes have to consider and watch what they eat all the time. They count calories, maximize their energy intake, and know what bulks their bodies up. How much do we consider what we take in spiritually? We stuff ourselves with whatever tastes good at the moment (television, music, internet) and end up letting God have the last opportunity to "feed us." We're so full we don't have time for reading chapters in the Bible, and end up just glancing over one scripture verse. We don't purpose to pray on our knees regularly. We fill ourselves with so much junk! We casually look over pornograghy and never feed ourselves with the good food of Scripture, which cleanses us. We fill our appetites with gossip, and end up feeling too guilty to pray.
Cleanse yourselves. Be Holy as God is Holy. Consider what you feed yourself with spiritually.
