Proverbs 16:20-24 He who heeds the word wisely will find good,And whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.21 The wise in heart will be called prudent,And sweetness of the lips increases learning.22 Understanding is a wellspring of life to him who has it.But the correction of fools is folly.23 The heart of the wise teaches his mouth,And adds learning to his lips.24 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.
As sweet as honeycomb, yes the wonderfulness of the honey right from the hive of the bees. Using that imagery we can get a glimpse of the sweetness of the precious Word of God. I have heard people say to me by I find the Bible so hard to understand, or so out of date, or they find it boring. Well, to those who do not know Jesus Christ that is exactly the response I would expect, but for a child of God the Bible is a treasure of truth, grace, mercy, guidance, encouragement, etc. I love the richness and the clarity and the joy and the pureness and the strength I find as I walk through the Word of God. There is no other book around that one can live their entire life totally by. Every aspect of this life we live is found within the pages of God’ Word. Who else beside the Creator of this world can give us the wherewithal to live an abundant and gracious life. Thank You Lord for the truth of Your Word. Pastor Tom
