“My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste: So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.”
After a great meal, a sweet dessert is often craved in order to completely satisfy our appetite.
Solomon knew of the goodness and sweetness of honey because he had tasted it before. He wisely used this comparison because the reward for seeking and finding Wisdom gives an expectation to taste again.
The sweetness of Wisdom should only entice us to seek It that much more.
“The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.”
Once we have tasted of the Sweetness of Wisdom, we need no proof that it is sweet and cannot be convinced that it tastes like anything else.
His Words are Sweet.
“How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
His Wisdom brings rewards.
“Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.”
Do we desire Him more than anything else?
The value of gold and silver is very high, but when compared to Wisdom there should be no comparison.
“Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.”
Taste the Sweetness of Wisdom today, and every day.
