a growing love...

There are three basic kinds of Bible students. There is the "nasty medicine" type. To them the Word is bitter - yech! - but it's good what ails them. Then there is the "shredded wheat" kind. To them Scripture is nourishing but dry. It's like eating a bale of hay. But the third kins is what I call the "strawberries-and-cream" folks. They just can't get enough of the stuff. How did they acquire that tast? By feastin on the Word. They've cultivated what Peter describes - an insatiable appetite for spiritual truth. Which of these three types are you? ~Howard G. Hendricks.


just liked this quote.  thought i would share.  

how does the Word taste to you?

i'm working on expanding my pallet.  i enjoy the Word.  but i want to be overwhelmed by it, caught up in it, infatuated with it!  

i want it to be sweet like honey, as Ezekiel found (Ezekiel 3:3).

praying for a more passionate appetite for the Bible!

  1. I'm working through the Bible for the 2nd time and will admit there are times there in the Old Testament that I still struggle--I know it's all profitable but, ummm yeah. *blush* But regardless of where I am in my reading, it is still the best way to start the day!
