Our family could write the book on sugar-overdoses.
Chapter 1: Using your lunch money to buy pounds of candy corn instead of lunch.
Chapter 2: Eating a cup of icing straight (with a little help from the factory tour guide).
Chapter 3: Putting so much brown sugar in your hot cereal that it turns black.
Three different generations. Three different stories. The same lesson learned.
But these childhood lessons miss one important point: Christ followers need to have a sweet tooth. A strong sweet tooth for the word of God.
In Psalm 19 and Psalm 119 David compares the Scriptures to honey and honeycomb. Choose your favorite sweet snack, and that is the analogy David is making. We are to crave God’s Word in the same way that we can’t resist warm chocolate chip cookies or a gooey s’more. The riches we find tucked between the Bible’s pages should compel us to return over and over to satisfy our sweet tooth. And, try as hard as you want, but you cannot overdose this sweet tooth. So go ahead and indulge!
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
