The Risk: His Goodness

"Here try it." My dad shoved a square, crystal glass, recently filled with water, to Jordan. Often during our last two years, Dad had successfully persuaded us to 'taste' a glass of water claiming it was good, only to find the liquid tasted awful. Neither of us were easily conned... . " Come on..." Dad pleaded.

Jordan, deciding it wasn't worth fighting over, reacted before I did. She took a glass, drinking the contents. . . Her eyes widened. "Wow! Tastes normal." My Dad chuckled, "I paid for a different water filter system and this one worked."
"Care to try some?" He asked, setting a cup down on our table, in front of me... my reflection loomed back. Did I trust him or did I trust past experiences? Him. I Grabbed the glass and took a risk because of HIS GOODNESS.

Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Will we trust our God or our past experiences? Some things can only be found out through the tasting of risk... the tasting of His goodness..

So true Ash! And...I've tasted that water before it was filtered...so you and Jordan tasting it really was a huge leap of faith! ;) Love you so much!

hey, ashley... good point. it's so important that we trust in God. and it's so great that we don't have to trust in him blindly. i'm curious though... you said, "some things can only be found out through the tasting of risk.."

my questions are... what is the risk in trusting in God? and what is it that we are actually tasting?

peace.
