Sweeter Than Honey


No one bothered to ask why she bought so many, but one person said with great understatement, “Perhaps she had a sweet tooth.”

The writer of Psalm 119 had a sweet tooth for the Word of God. He said that it was, “sweeter than honey to my mouth.” 

Develop a taste for it.

An old slogan for Cracker Jacks was: “The more you eat, the more you want.”

For Those in Anguish

PSALM 11:1—“In the Lord I take refuge.”

GOD HAS NEVER FAILED ME,” wrote George Mueller (1805-1898).

“Even in my greatest difficulties, heaviest trials, and deepest poverty and need…I was enabled by God’s grace to trust Him, He has always come to my aid. I delight in speaking well of His name.”

Martin Luther (1483-1546), deep in thought and needing to grasp hidden strength during a time of danger and fear in his life, was seen tracing on the table with his finger the words, “He lives! He lives!”

I’d be a basket case if I had not made the commitment to seek God first over 33 years ago.

Taking refuge in Him has allowed me to endure a failed Texas church plant in 2015 and gave me the strength to persevere when, at my next church, 2/3 of my new congregation abandoned me—including my wife.

America’s Christian Roots

Since we celebrated Independence Day last week, I thought it important to understand how the majority of its founders acknowledged that God had a hand in building this greatest nation on earth despite what the naysayers and cynics say.

American’s confidence and belief in the bible is at an all-time low with only 20% saying that the Bible is the literal Word of God, according to a recent Gallup Poll. In addition, there’s a decline in overall religiosity in the U.S. adult population including

  • declines in formal identification with a religion
  • declines in church membership
  • declines in religious service attendance,
  • declines in the personal importance of religion,
  • and declines in belief in God.

This is tragic because we as a nation were founded on Christian principles. Want proof? I’ll bet you didn’t learn this about Christopher Columbus’ reason for setting off to discover a new world:

“I was led of the Holy Spirit to carry the message of the Gospel to undiscovered lands.”

This is what the Pilgrims wrote in the Mayflower Compact about why they came in 1620:

“In the name of God, amen. Having undertaken for the glory of God and for the advancement of the Christian faith, do solemnly and mutually in the presence of God, covenant and combine ourselves together.”

Twenty-three 23 later, as more and more people settled in New England, the Puritans formed The New England Confederation. This is in their Constitution:

“Whereas we all came into these parts with one and the same end and aim, namely, to advance the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to enjoy the liberties of the gospel in purity and peace.”

As each state organized itself, the founders’ commitment to the Gospel is evident in the documents drafted:
