Wandering with God

Listen to God through creation

We are what we eat

Ezekiel 3:1-3 And he said to me, “Son of man, eat what is before you, eat this scroll; then go and speak to the people of Israel.” So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat. Then he said to me, “Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you and fill your stomach with it.” So I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth.

Ps. 19:7,10 The law of the Lord is perfect restoring the soul… they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb

Psalm 119:103 How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

We are what we eat
