"A candy bar’s worth of dark chocolate, or 100 grams, has just as many antioxidants as 100 grams each of spinach, prunes, raisins, kale, and Brussels sprouts, combined…[Dark chocolate] contains more than 700 compounds, including 26 known anti-inflammatories, 14 antiseptics, 12 analgesics, and two anesthetics…A recent study found that consuming 100 grams of dark chocolate daily reduced food cravings.” (1)
Sometimes we think of God's Word as the spinach in our lives. We need the nutrition but we don’t love the taste.
But if we compare the Bible to a food, I think it's life’s dark chocolate…able to heal and strengthen, able to reduce our cravings for the bad things in life, and surprisingly rich and delicious.(2) And the beauty of the Bible is we can never eat too much of it!
So everyday let’s “taste and see that the LORD is good” (Psalm 34:8).
(1) Health by Chocolate
(2) Another benefit: Dark chocolate should be eaten in limited amounts, but we can never get too much of God's Word.
