What is the Cud?
The Cud is a blend of Bible exposition and personal opinion, produced for the purpose of giving its readers a little something to chew on.  Its content reflects my own efforts to try and learn what is pleasing to the Lord (Ephesians 5:10).  I operate from the presupposition that the Bible is the reliable revelation of God’s works and His will for those who worship Him.

Wouldn’t it be better to just read the Bible?

Why call it The Cud?  A regurgitated ball of grass is not a pretty image; in fact it makes us a little nauseous just thinking about it.
A ruminating cow is the archetype of a person who thinks, ponders or mulls things over.  Qualities that are, unfortunately, being bred out of most of the herd.

The Cud presupposes that biblical meditation is indispensible for those who want to honor God.  Unlike many forms of meditation, Judeo-Christian meditation focuses the practitioner outwardly rather than inwardly.  It focuses a person on the Creator’s words and works (Psalm 143:5).  Biblical meditation is active rather than passive; seeks to fill the mind rather than empty it; and can, at times, result in more discomfort than comfort.

The objective of most meditation is relaxation and tranquility, whereas the objective of biblical meditation is faith and obedience: “…we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ”(2 Corinthians 10:5).

That was a long answer.
It happens.

Are you suggesting we meditate on your Cud the way we meditate on the Bible?
Not unless you want to die of Mad Cud Disease.

Did you think that was clever?
I guess not.

Do you offer any consumer protection?
The fat, protein and carbohydrate content vary from Cud to Cud and no guarantee is made regarding its composition or purity.  It is recommended that readers retain a Bible and imitate the people of Berea who “examined the Scriptures daily, to see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11).
