When I was a young teenager, a group of men from our church went elk hunting. They brought back some elk meat and gave it to my mother, brother, and I. It’s tougher than bison or venison we were told.
So my mother marinated it and turned it into jerky. It was a slow process, but it was delicious and we had months of great tasting elk jerky.
Chicken soup is for those sick and in need of medication. Elk jerky for the soul is not chicken soup for the soul. Elk jerky is for those on the Lord’s firing lines. It supplies protein to those fighting in combat.
It is a combination of encouragement to keep on and ammunition to those on the firing line.
