Tasting . . .

A quote from Jonathan Edwards, preacher of the Great Awakening (1700s), in The Prodigal God (p. 108, by Timothy Keller) . . . reflecting on the words of the psalm: "Taste and see that the LORD is good."

The difference between believing that God is gracious and tasting that God is gracious is as different as having a rational belief that honey is sweet and having the actual sense of its sweetness.
