(Proverbs 25:27 KJV) It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory.
This is the second time in this chapter that “honey” (1706) is mentioned. Both times moderation is called for. A key word here is “much” (7235a). Let’s face it. We are prone to excess. Remember the potato chip commercial which claimed, “I bet you can’t eat just one.” That is true for the two extremes, haters and lovers.
The two extremes are not moderation. Abstinence is easier than moderation. Gluttony is easier than moderation. What is hard is being the baby bear and knowing what is just right.
So think about it. Do you live a life of moderation or gluttony? Think about your relationships. Think about your spending patterns. Think about your food choices. Moderation is the key in all areas.
