The Drippings of the Honeycomb

Devotional#4: 9 January 2017
“...even sweeter than Honey!"

Honey
The Bible has an awful lot to say about honey and honeycomb. There are several very good things to learn about God and His Son from Honey!

That's a good thing because His delicious Honey is fun to revisit frequently!

"My son, eat honey, for it is good, and the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to your taste."

- Proverbs 24:13

Despite what some diet experts say, the Bible says that Honey is good! Of note: it says this about RAW honey (the drippings of the honeycomb) in particular. I'm not sure this applies to your favorite honey-flavored cereal. In fact, one could make a strong case to support God's intolerance of imposters - but that's a different devotional!

This devotional is designed to talk about God's real all-natural Honey!

God gave us Honey, like all things in His creation, with the ultimate purpose of glorifying Himself. And, in His benevolent and Loving nature, He has seen fit to use it as one of the rewards for faithful people.

"I have said to you, 'You shall inherit [the promise land], and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey.' I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from the peoples..."

- Lev 20:24

"You shall therefore keep the whole commandment that I command you today, that you may be strong, and go in and take possession of the land that you are going over to possess, and that you may live long in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers to give to them and to their offspring, a land flowing with milk and honey."

- Deut 11:8

While the Bible does say Honey is GOOD, and that God will reward his chosen and separated peoples with an inheritance rich with honey, His word also tells us that there are things SWEETER than Honey! God's word tells us that his Law and his Words are sweeter and more desirable than Honey!

"...the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. "

- Psalm 19:10


"How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!"

- Psalm 9:103



So.. the next time you're struck by the delicious sweetness of Honey, remember that God uses it as a gauge to inform us that His word is even sweeter!

I have some Christian friends from Georgia who sell some of God's delicious gift. Their names Andy and Melissa and their website is: www.urbannafarms.com.

Why don't you email them and ask about buying some from them so that you can share this tasty word picture with a friend today!
