Most people like sweets; especially after a fancy meal, most of us would crave for desserts. The feeling of tasting something sweet is simply fantastic. In joyous occasions, people indulge in sweet dishes. In sad and depressing times, eating sweets would ease your discomfort.
In the ancient Near East, gold is the most valuable commodity and honey is the sweetest substance. The psalmist associates God’s words with gold and honey. As the words of God is precious, and it is sweet to the eyes and ears, the author of this psalm encourages the readers to experience these benefits themselves. Let’s ponder Psalm 19.
9Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever. The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair. 10They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. (Psalm 19:9–10 NLT)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Dear God, can I taste that Your Word is precious and sweet?”
