Just reading the title, you might have certain brands running through your mind: Jolt, Amp, Rock Star, Red Bull, and others. Actually, those are not even energy drinks. They are “restless” drinks. They don’t give you any more energy than drinking a glass of Kool-Aid or a can of pop. All they do is make you feel like you have more energy, because they have a little extra caffeine. On top of that, there is the psychological effect of having spent all that money for a can of liquid, you want to tell yourself it was worth it. The Eskimo energy drink Ounce for ounce, you can’t beat it. It’s a food, a drink, a medicine, a heat source, a preservative, and at times, a two stroke engine oil. It’s the official energy drink of Central Yup’ikdom and many other Eskimo cultures across time: seal oil. Sixteen ounces of seal oil can take a person a whole lot farther than 16 gallons of Full Throttle. Seal oil is pure energy-loaded fat. No water, no corn syrup, no caffeine, just high density lipids, ready to clean out your heart, keep you warm, and give your body the energy it needs to go the distance. The drink that Moses drank When the Jewish people were in the wilderness they got thirsty. Guess what, they didn’t crack open a can of Doubleshot, they had a better energy drink. They weren’t sipping Sobe or guzzling Go Girl, they drank from the Rock. They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. (I Corinthians 10:3-4 NIV) I am not going to sugar coat it: the Israelites made some bad mistakes. In spite of all of that though, they were able to go for 40 years totally dependent on God. They ate manna, a food that came down from heaven every day, and they drank from the rock that followed them: Jesus. He was their energy drink.
