Sweet tooth - Daily Bread


How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103

The woman must have had a major chocolate craving! She stopped at a Woolworth’s store in London and asked for every Mars bar in stock. She paid cash for 10,656 candy bars. Nobody bothered to ask why she wanted so many, but one person jokingly said, "Perhaps she has a sweet tooth."

The psalmist had a "sweet tooth" too – for something far more healthy than chocolate. He loved the Word of God and found it "sweeter than honey" to his taste (Psalm 119:103).

How can we develop our spiritual tastebuds so that we have a strong craving for the sweetness of God’s Word?

Read the Word.
It may seem obvious, but you have to read the Word if you’re going to learn to love it as the psalmist did. Set aside a few minutes each day and read a passage. Think about the words, their meaning and context.

Reflect on the Word.
Jot down a verse and carry it with you. Look at it often during the day. Follow the psalmist’s example and make it your "meditation all the day" (v. 97).

Apply the Word.
Ask God what He wants you to understand and how to apply it to your life that day.

God’s Word will give you a "sweet tooth" and always satisfy it. – Anne Cetas

Upon Thy Word I rest, so strong, so sure;

So full of comfort blest, so sweet, so pure,

Thy Word that changest not, that faileth never!

My King, I rest upon Thy Word forever. – Havergal
