Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 web

How sweet are your promises [words] to my taste, more than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103 web

Honey is a very sweet object lesson. It has been used as such for a very long time. When a child is introduced to the Bible and its fantastic stories and great wisdom, it should coincide with sweetness and fun. Joy should be at the heart of the learning experience. Little children may focus more on the sweet snacks and fun of the festivities. But as time goes on, the seeds planted in their heart and soul should grow and blossom. They should learn how God’s words and promises are sweet and good for us.

God loves us more than we can even imagine. He has given us a wonderful gift, the Bible. In it, He explains how we may have a wonderful relationship with Him. Learn and teach how sweet it can be to our heart, soul, strength, and mind when we have a relationship with Him and study His word. Spend time with God and His Word the Bible every day.

[Please check with parents before giving children honey. Some are allergic to honey. Have them help decide on a good substitute for their child.]
