Just a Word: Taste

Look out for this feature every Wednesday!

Taste: just a word.

Taste: the sense which perceives and distinguishes between salt, bitter, sour and sweet. Discernment, what one likes and has an attraction to.

Taste: It is a powerful sense. Pickles make you pucker; chocolate makes you smile; horseradish throws your head back. Taste is an experience that lingers and stays in your mind forever. Taste: every day we enjoy something or reject something based on taste.

Taste: I like jazz music, rock music, bluegrass music; many forms of music attract my taste. Some forms I reject. Some forms are not tasteful to my musical palate. Now if we talk about food, there is very little that I find outside of my taste. I have my own taste in music based on a subjective taste. Now food is different. My taste buds dictate what I like and do not like. Still it is subjective.

Taste: a pleasure. The Word of God says, “O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in him” (Psalm 34:8). This is a taste that comes from the spirit. It is not from the physical. Still, the understanding of taste is well understood. Taste the goodness of God. Experience the sweetness of a relationship that surpasses all others.

Taste: just a word, one that we use every day. Life is full of tastes. I was attracted to my wife because of my taste in beauty. I like cheesecake because of my taste in sweets. I like certain styles of clothing because of my taste in fashion.

Taste: do not underestimate its value in your life.
