“How sweet the taste of Your promise is! It tastes sweeter than honey.: -Psalm 119:103
Open the lid of a peanut butter jar in our household and a black Lab with irresistible chocolate brown eyes will instantly appear at your feet. She knows if she waits patiently and just long enough, she’ll get a lick if not an entire spoonful. The promise of that taste brings her running every time.
One day, as my youngest daughter read aloud the words to Psalm 119: 103 the image of Adi and peanut butter played through my head. I couldn’t help but think that this is how I should come to my time in God’s word. Eagerly anticipating the sweet taste of our Father’s promises.
Adi quickly taught young Summer the joys of peanut butter. As I was making peanut butter cookies, I snapped this picture of my attentive audience waiting patiently for a spoonful. Look closely and you’ll see Adi drooling in anticipation.
Lord, may my love for Your Word be evident to my children and inspire them to eagerly read your scriptures drooling in anticipation of what they will receive from You. Amen.
My son, eat honey, because it is good, And the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to your taste. Know that [skillful and godly] wisdom is [so very good] for your life and soul; If you find wisdom, then there will be a future and a reward, And your hope and expectation will not be cut off.Proverbs 24: 13-14, Amplified
