Do you like Chocolate?

I love chocolate, and thanks to my wife I now like dark chocolate more than milk chocolate.  But, thanks to diabetes I can't eat too much of it...bummer...however, I like chocolate candy, chocolate cake, chocolate muffins, hot fudge, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate and more chocolate.. are you with me?  Can I have an 'Amen'?

Nothing seems to taste better than when you find the perfect chocolate. And nothing is better spiritually for us than when we come across that perfect passage that speaks directly to our need.

Psalm 119: 103
How sweet are Your words to my taste,
Sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Proverbs 16:24
Pleasant words are like a honeycomb,
Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.

The Psalmist compared the Word of God to honey.  However, I have a feeling that if Chocolate had been as common in those days as it is now the word chocolate would have appeared instead.  One thing I have found that I am sure you can relate to is that when I taste that great piece of chocolate I want just one more bite (well maybe a couple more).  As I study the Word of God often I find a tasty morsel. The Word is sweet and pleasant to the taste. Finding a morsel is what I am looking for as I go through the Bible. The morsel will lead to more.  And, the more I take in of Gods Word, the better off spiritually I will be.
