Psalm 34 and Pascal

This morning at church we listened to God’s word preached from Psalm 34.   During the scripture reading I looked down and read the note that I had written in my Bible at Psalm 34:8.  I do not have  alot of notes and underlining in my Bible but this one is of significance.  Psalm 34:8 reads

8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!

The note is from Pascal’s Pensées, #666.  It states, “Sinners lick the earth, that is to say, love earthly pleasures.”

My question to you and myself is are we tasting to see that the Lord is good and finding joy in Him or are we licking the earth for earthly pleasures and comfort in them?

Listen to this mornings message, Taste and See that the Lord is Good – Psalm 34.
