Taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalm 34:8
My backyard has flourished into a living pantry this year. Besides tomatoes, squash, radishes and an assortment of herbs, I have a variety of sugary fruit. Strawberries, blackberries, grapes, raspberries and citrus galore are there for my picking. Much of the sweet produce never makes it into the house, though, because I snack on the berries as I work around the garden. It’s my yard candy.
Isn’t God good that He gave us such delights that are nutritious AND delicious? God loves us so much that He provides for us, but not in a boring utilitarian way. He creates rich variety for our pleasure as well as our health.
He could have provided our sustenance through tasteless means but He enjoys giving us pleasure. Each bite in my yard is a reminder of God’s love. Each taste is a sign of His goodness. What a God we serve.
What reminds you of His love and goodness?
