M&M’s are melt-resistant, ready to eat chocolate candies that were created during the Second World War to be included in soldier’s rations, they took off in popularity, and when they came home from war, they wanted their M&M’s!
Thanks to Mars & Murrie and the market demand that was created by veterans, M&M’s ended up being the #1 candy in the United States in 1956 (read the entire History Channel origin story of the M&M brand).
Things about M&Ms:
1 – M&Ms are marked with an “m”
Well, guess what? You have a life purpose to be on this world. Life is meant to be experienced. You’re here to have fun and explore and above all to do the will of God. It’s society and convention that drill into you that you have to find a career, settle down, have passion and drive. We’re taught it’s the only way to succeed.
we are all on this world for a purpose and focus. We’re marked for a higher calling:
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on God and His calling for our lives.
2 – M&Ms come in a variety of colors
God has created each of us unique in many ways too. Although we are all called to ministry, we each are uniquely gifted, have different backgrounds, different personalities, etc.
“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.” 1Corinthians 12:4-6
Think about it, we vary in our colors too: Some are RED – they are red hot and bold, competitive. Some are BLUE – calm, dependable, solid. Some are YELLOW – friendly, positive, creative, encouraging. Some are GREEN – analytical, organized, practical, decisive. Some are ORANGE – assertive, outgoing, assertive. Some are BROWN – warm, inviting, trustworthy, wholesome.
God has His way of blending our background, personality, & spiritual gifts into unique, individual ministers for His Kingdom!
