What do we taste like? How can we tell if our heart is sweet?
Whenever we go to the grocery store to pick a sweet watermelon it can be a challenging task.
We search for that perfect melon by hitting, thumping or tapping it several times.
We listen for that that certain sound. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
However when the watermelon is cut open and we taste it (even smell it) the truth is revealed. In other words, when the cut occurs then the truth begins to be revealed.
If it’s doesn’t taste that great we sometimes just put up with. We might say, “Well, at least it’s cold and juicy!”
Spiritually speaking likewise for believers. We are like that watermelon.
People hit us, thump at us with unkind words, or we get into pressured situations.
Then it happens, thoughts, words and actions begin to come to the surface or leak out.
In other words when we are cut by words, difficult circumstances and so on, whatever is in us will come out.
Then people will know how we taste, either sweet or bitter. Sometimes out of kindness they just put up with us!
What do people taste from our life, is it sweet or bitter?
“Some people like to make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise soothe and heal.”
