Are you really living your best life?

Taste and See!

Psalm 34:8. Taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed, is the one who takes refuge in him.

Years ago a great commercial aired on the television. It was “Little Mikey”, a little boy who was promoting Quaker Oat cereal. Two older brothers didn’t want to taste the “Life” cereal which was promoting a healthy new cereal campaign. Neither boy wanted to be the first one to taste the cereal. Yes, you guessed it, they slide the bowl to Mikey to try and he’s known to “ hate everything “. After Mikey eats a few spoonful of the cereal the boys excitedly shout out “ he likes it” , and they began to taste and eat the cereal .

Have you ever experienced a “Little Mikey” moment or the brothers moment ? What did you do? Often times we look at things and assume it’s not good. We should taste and see before we automatically reject something. Not only do we reject foods, we sometimes reject people. Have you looked at something and immediately rejected it? I’m guilty of this offense. I looked at some black berry cobbler and said “yuck”. I don’t want any of that, the sight was pleasing but I gave it a thumbs down. Several people were getting second and third servings of the cobbler saying, “wow, this is awesome stuff”. I decided to taste it, surprisingly, it was delicious. When you add more taste and sight to your life , it just might be more enjoyable . How can you increase your wealth, by aggressively adding more taste and sight ( imagination) to your life . Let’s give it a sincere and honest make-over.
