“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.”—Psalm 34:8.
Was there a food that you were afraid to try when you were younger? Or have you had trouble getting your children or grandchildren to even have a little taste of certain foods?
Usually, the foods that kids won’t try are the ones that are good for them, like broccoli, peas, or some other green vegetable. We don’t have any trouble getting them to like ice cream or hot dogs, do we?
In the same way, many people don’t want to give God a try. They think that Christian living will somehow leave a bad taste in their mouth. While they may understand that living for the Lord would be good for them, they don’t realize how pleasing that lifestyle would be, if they would only give it a try.
Sometimes children will finally try a food that they don’t think they will like, and will actually ask for more of it. So it is with people who give God a try.
We should be very diligent and very intentional in our efforts to get people to “taste and see that the Lord is good”. Have you planned out your strategy for today?
