Last week I picked up a small cake of honeycomb from one of my favorite restaurants. True to the warm invitation
of this little country diner, “Company’s Coming”, sells these little jewels of
honeycomb from local bee keepers.
Oh my, it’s the sweetest, most luscious thing you ever put in your mouth. And
bound to satisfy a sweet tooth’s craving.
I believe our hearts crave something more than our necessary daily food. It goes beyond the need to fill our empty stomachs. I’m talking about spiritual hunger. When you have tasted everything the world has to offer, but deep down your soul
is empty. Hungry for something more.
I agree with the psalmist when he wrote God’s words are sweeter than honey straight from the comb. Honestly, there is nothing more satisfying than the precious God-breathed words I find in my Bible. It’s the bread of life Jesus spoke of when he declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35)
Have you tasted the sweetness of the Lord’s Word? If not, why not try it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold. Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. Psalm 19:10
