The Gift of Taste

Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. Genesis 1:29

We learned about our five senses in elementary school science class, but have you really given these incredible gifts much thought? Just consider the sense of taste for a moment. God could have provided us nourishment, without flavor; food without the ability to enjoy it. But God choose to give us the gift of taste. To compliment that incredible gift, He gave us hundreds of fruits, vegetables and grains, as well as herbs and spices to compliment the many proteins He created.  The fact that we can taste the subtle differences between these foods is indeed a miracle, and most enjoyable.

Have you considered thanking God for his thoughtfulness? Have you ever thought about sitting and enjoying God and all He has to offer? He created a world for us to care for, but also to enjoy. God has given us so much, but we hurry through life, without stopping to look at the beauty He gives us every day. We don’t listen to the symphony of sounds right outside our window.

Take a moment to enjoy the world. Take a moment to enjoy God.

  1. Julie, it is so hard to comprehend all God has created and all He has done for us. We get bogged down with every day life and forget that everything we are, everything we have and everything we see is by God’s grace. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Hi Julie,
    Often I am astounded at His creativity. It’s EVERYWHERE!! And in the people He made too.
    love to you friend,
