Sweeter Than Honey

The Psalmist declares his love for God’s law, and demonstrates that love by meditation and obedience. The blessings of such devotion pour in as he becomes wise and gains understanding. God’s precepts protect him from his enemies, and although a teacher has knowledge and an old man has experience, the Psalmist’s love of God’s word gives him more understanding than either of these. Keeping God’s precepts keeps him from evil, and in this way, the living word loves the Psalmist back, and is sweeter than honey to his mouth. As you come to worship today, come prepared to meditate on and obey God’s word, and taste and see how sweet it is.
