Eat The Comb

Editor’s Note: This blog post appeared recently in the 1-Minute Bible Love Notes blog by Gail Burton Purath. I’ve become interested in honey bees,  their lives, their work ethic and their many benefits. When I was busy losing 54 pounds this year I turned to raw honey as my sole source of sweetener. I even use it in salads on oatmeal and on just about anything that needs sweetening. I hope you enjoy this 1-minute devotional.

Little yellow bees, flowers, pollen, hives, queens and workers…havehoney bee you ever thought about the marvelous process of honey-making?

We serve a Creator-Designer who hardwired complexity and beauty into everything.

Honey is no ordinary substance. It’s sweeter than sugar and contains trace vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It’s used in some beauty products because it’s a natural humectant that’s good for skin. Studies show it’s also effective in treating some cold and sore throat symptoms.

Natural, healing, nutritious, sweet, pleasant, making one beautiful…what a great picture of God’s Word:

The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous.
They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,than honey from the honeycomb.*
Psalm 19:9,10

Let’s take time today to marvel at our Creator and taste the sweetness of His Word.

*The most natural way to get honey (the sweetest form) is in the comb—straight from the bee hive.
