When I was a kid I loved to eat peanut butter and honey sandwiches but they had to be made right. I mean you couldn’t just butter the bread and smear peanut butter and honey on it – there was a process.
First you had to have soft butter. Put a rounded teaspoon of butter in a dish, now add a big spoon of peanut butter and finally top it with a rounded teaspoon of honey. Now here’s the important part, stir until creamy and smooth and then spread it on the bread. On my now that was a sandwich.
If no other time of the week this was generally what I call supper on Sunday evening. You see we would have our big dinner at noon after coming home from church and before we would head back for evening service we needed to grab something quick to eat and mine who be the sandwich described above. Delicious!
That’s where my mine went this morning when I was reading in Proverbs.
“Honey is good for you my children, and it tastes sweet.
14 Wisdom is like honey for your life—
if you find it, your future is bright.” Proverbs 24:13-14 CEV
Wisdom is like honey…sweet and delicious. Wisdom makes life better; fewer regrets, more joy when we act wisely.
“Eat honey, dear child—it’s good for you—
and delicacies that melt in your mouth.
Likewise knowledge, and wisdom for your soul—
Get that and your future’s secured,
your hope is on solid rock.” Proverbs 24:13-14 MSG
When our lives are guided by wisdom, Godly wisdom, we are building a solid foundation that won’t be shaken by life’s storms.
” My son, eat honey; it is good. Honey straight from the honeycomb is the sweetest. 14 In the same way, know that wisdom is good for you. Wisdom will give you something to hope for that will not disappoint you.” Proverbs 24:13-14 ERV
Wisdom builds hope and when we hope in the Lord we will never be ashamed.
So get out your spoon and scoop up a big helping of honey – it’s good for you physically and spiritual honey is good for your soul!
(and if you want a real treat – go make a peanut butter honey sandwich as described above)
