Usually “honeycomb” (1706/6688) is presented in a positive light. This is actually a compound word which literally means “comb of the honey”. Only one other place has this combination.
(Psalms 19:10 KJV) More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.Here it talks about “words” (561); in Psalms, the Law.
Our speech is to be pleasant and true. We are to be that rock in the middle of the stream where a traveler can put their foot and know that it will not turn under them. We are to be that electrical appliance that is properly grounded so a touch will not kill. We are the living representatives of Jesus.
So? I sometimes shudder to think that people would hear some of the things I say in moments of weakness. We are not like the animals. We have mouths that can choose truth or falsehood. We can heal or destroy. I know which I want.
We all mess up at times; that's why there's grace. Keep fighting the good fight.
I guess that is something to look forward to.
Grace and peace
