How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! -Psalm 119:103
How can you taste words? This verse is usually talked about as a metaphor. However, did you know when Jewish children are being taught to read the Torah at ages 4-5, the Rabbi drizzles honey on a wooden slate, gives them a stylus, and teaches them to read and write? When they have completed they get to lick the honey. This creates positive reinforcement for the children, and the words are actually sweet!
What does your spiritual appetite look like? When we are learning scripture we most likely are not writing in honey and cleaning our pens by licking them. But, when you’re reading the Bible are you feeling full? It can be difficult to get the proper spiritual nutrition during this busy season, but do your best to start taking bigger bites and chew them slowly.
Savor this season with the Holy Spirit and enjoy the sweetness of His blessings.
