Continual Feast - Karen Huffaker
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Psalm 34:8 ESV

We always look forward to Thanksgiving Day, one of my favorite days of the year. Aside from the family gathering and sweet fellowship, we enjoy a grand buffet set out before us. Plans may call for one big sit-down-at-the-table meal, but inevitably it becomes a continual feast throughout the day.

For an appetizer, we start snacking on pumpkin bread early on. Anticipation grows throughout the day as we taste and nibble when each new dish enters. The excitement builds to a crescendo until we sit together for dinner, followed by sumptuous desserts. At the day’s end, we’re still savoring the last dessert crumbs over fresh-brewed coffee.

But is our study of God’s Word a continual feast? Do we begin tasting Scripture at first light and think about God’s truths as morning progresses? Do we go deeper and study as the day goes on? Do we meditate, reflect, and feed on more of what God has to tell us? Do we apply His teachings? Are we filled by evening? Did we savor all of what He laid before us?

Examine what you read, study, and experience. Reflect on all that God has done. Open your mouth and taste. See how good God is. Those who hope and trust in God’s truths will be filled, comforted, and blessed.

How can you better experience and savor the Bible?
