Honey for the Soul


Proverbs 24:8-34, Psalm 119:81-120

Proverbs 24:13-14 – My son, eat honey for it is good, and the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to your taste. Know that wisdom is such to your soul; if you find it, there will be a future, and your hope will not be cut off.

Lord God, I love sweet stuff. You’ve given me taste buds that crave candy and cakes and all things sweet. Give me such a craving for the wisdom of your Word. Give me such a longing to study, understand, meditate on, and apply the good things that your Word has to say. When I understand your word, help me to stick in my heart, to remember it’s truth and to take it with me onto my days paths. When I don’t quite understand what your word is saying, give me a desire to dig in, to work on it, and search your Word so that I can begin to understand it. Pour out your Holy Spirit on me so that I see the wonderful things of your Word.  Open my mind and heart to hear, understand, meditate on and rejoice in your wisdom. Make worship the same for me.  Make the word that you give me in worship – my pastor, through the readings, through the hymns, songs, and spiritual songs – make it all honey to my soul. Give me a craving for wisdom from you that I might hope and a future from you and in your Word. Amen.
