Soul Candy (Proverbs 6:20-22)

I spent a relaxing weekend in the Okanagan valley in Northern British Columbia with my wife and some of her family.The sweeping views of Lake Okanagan, surrounded by snow capped mountains, were spectacular. On our first full day there, the sun broke through and illuminated a blissful setting. And as we left the following morning, a light dusting of snow gently blanketed the valley.


It was pure eye candy.


As my eyes savored the views, I wondered, is there a soul candy?


My son, keep your father’s command, and do not forsake the law of your mother.

Bind them continually upon your heart; tie them around your neck.

When you roam, they will lead you; when you sleep, they will keep you;

And when you awake, they will speak with you.

Proverbs 6:20-22 (NKJV)


God’s Word is the soul candy. It nourishes, refreshes, and delights. It is sweet to taste, delicious and filling when I consume it, and always satisfying. It leads me, keeps, me, and speaks to me. And I will never, ever, become full. The more I receive, the more I desire. Just like the beauty of the Okanagan valley, God wants me to delight in His Word and in Him, devouring His soul candy. And as He feeds me, He shall give me the desires of my heart.


Soul Candy.


God’s Creation is eye candy. But God’s Word is my soul candy!


Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
