Watching my kids grow up was a wonderful experience … I recall one afternoon giving my baby girl Jeana six jellybeans and telling her that she could not have anymore after she was finished eating them…
After practically inhaling the first five, Jeana lingered over the final one. She sucked on it, took it out of her mouth, bit into it, sucked on it some more, then gnawed at the outer shell. Knowing that this was her last jellybean, she took a full 30 minutes to eat the treat completely.
I watched my little girl with amusement as she was learning the value of savoring …enjoying taste and texture and learning to draw out every bit of flavor from the jellybeans.
God wants us to savor His presence. He allows us to gain intimate and satisfying knowledge of Him. And when we meditate on His Word, we will draw out a deeper understanding of who He is. As we taste His goodness and love, He will reveal the distinctive flavor of His sovereignty, holiness, and faithfulness. Surely our Father must look on with enjoyment as we learn how to enjoy and savor Him.
