“How sweet are Your words to my taste! 
Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth! 
From Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false
way.”  (Psalm 119:103-104)

What is sweet in your
mouth?  Is it the profanity of this world
or the Word of the Lord.  We do have a
fondness for that which pleases us.  Come
to the Word and learn its intricacies. 
Know that the Lord of all creation has given us a gift finer than the
finest of all that this world could ever come up with.  In the word of the Lord is found hope and an
eternal future.  Come, taste and see.

Lord, You know that I am titillated by the things of this world.  I am forever reading and consuming the things
the world produces, but barely have time to spend with You or in Your
Word.  Guide me, O Lord, to have a refined
taste that knows that Your Word is a great and rich heritage.  Refine my tastes Lord that I may know what is
good and what is harmful.  Lead me in the
right way.

Lord Jesus, Your Words are soothing to the weary soul.  Make my burden light and my yoke easy.  Help me set my thoughts and actions on the better and finer things.  Lead me in the way I need to go this day that I would meditate upon Your Word and know more fully the truth You have revealed.  Reach into my heart and take away what is false that it may be filled with Your truth.  Amen.
