We need to be careful what we put on our plates.
We might learn to like it!—
ADIES of an organization may decide to raise money by having a tasters luncheon. You purchase a ticket which enables you to taste all or any of the prepared dishes. If you like the taste, perhaps you would like to buy the recipe.
Taste is one of the senses God gave us, one that adds variety to our lives. Sometimes taste even saves our lives, should we happen on to spoilage.
Obviously we don’t all prefer the same taste. Some say,”Oh, doesn’t this pepper have a good flavor?” All I can taste is a burning hot. We remember the way food tastes because we often reorder our favorite.
(I well remember the taste of Ivory soap because Mama always washed slang words out of our mouths).
Some tastes are cultivated . We need to be careful what we put on our plates —we might learn to like it!
Some have just tasted Christianity while others have fully indulged. This makes it impossible to restore someone who just does not like the taste of living in a right relationship with the Master(Heb 6:1) Peter writes, (2 Pet:3:20-22) telling of those who were saved, but as a dog returns to his own vomit, …they have returned to their disgusting taste.
Some have tasted “that the Lord is gracious”(I Pet.2:3). “Oh taste and see that the Lord is good”(Psa.34:8). “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth” (Psa. 119:103).
