Sweeter than honey
“THE law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward” (Psalms 19:7 – 11).
The Bible is a very unique book, consisting of 66 books which were written by about 40 human authors over a period of many centuries.
The progressive revelation from Genesis to Revelation attests to the fact that all Scripture has been inspired by the Holy Spirit Himself.
It has been translated into many different languages and is still the most sought after book worldwide.
Why is this the case? It is because the Bible is known as the “Word of God”. The way of salvation has been clearly disclosed, affording all sinful mankind the opportunity to be reconciled to Him who is the “King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God” (1 Timothy 1:17).
For all who have discovered its treasures, the Scriptures are more precious than gold and sweeter than honey. By them we are warned, and we need to take heed of this warning, for eternity is at stake.
There is great reward for those who obey its contents.
The riches of the blessings of the Lord can already be experienced during our lifetime, but the culmination of our reward will be the home of righteousness (2 Peter 3:13).
