Sweeter than honey - by Ben Bonython
Last week, we stayed at Victor Harbor and this included a pilgrimage to Port Elliot Bakery. The bakery was busy as always and the cabinets inside were full of every nice thing imaginable. I reflected on the taste of the sweets, the location under the gum tree along the street, and the moment with friends and family. Creating memories is so important and enriching, but even the taste of Port Elliot Bakery eventually fades requiring me to go and taste and eat again! Reflecting on the Lord and His word is not so different. In the same way, you can have a moment reading the scriptures and in prayer but it fades – you cannot live in the past memories. Rather those past memories encourage you to go, and taste again! So taste every day, the honey of the word:
- How sweet your words taste to me; they are sweeter than honey Ps 119:103
- They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb Psalm 19:10.
