Eating Squirrel

Circa June 2011 on his 6th Birthday

Jason and I were talking about the book of Ezekiel the other day. 

Did you know that God had Ezekiel eat a scroll? I asked.

A squirrel? he asked, a little horrified.

No, not a squirrel, a scroll, I laughed.


Well, God wanted Ezekiel to really have His Word go deep into His heart, 
so He had Ezekiel actually eat a scroll that had His words on it.

Hmmm,  Jason thought.

Do you know what it tasted like?

Uh, no, Jason grimaced.

It tasted like honey.  
Isn't that amazing... I thought it would taste gross.  
But that is how God wants His Word to taste to us... sweet like honey.

I think this is enough concept for me, Mom.

I thought that was hilarious... enough concept!!  

God's word is sweet, even when it's hard.  
But sometimes I have to stop and ponder for a while, too.  
Sometimes I've had enough concept, too, and I have to meditate for a while.  
To  let it really sink in... to really digest it.

God is patient with me... and then I'm ready for some more concept!  

Ready to eat some more scroll!

What a wonderful lesson and I love the humor our children add to it. :) The other day I told my son Ben that we were going to IKEA and he said "that's the short guy from the Bible!" IKEA = Zaccheus. :)

your boy sounds like my boy when he's had enough, "concept."

his word is hard to chew sometimes, but so so so nourishing. i just finished leviticus and am now in hebrews. leviticus is hard to chew, and swallow, and digest. but hebrews is now making sense of that meal. i like how God does that. feeds me eggplant and fish (blech), and shows me in hind-sight how good it was for me.
