“Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.” Proverbs 16:24
Thank you for visiting my page. The Honey Held Mama has been a page that I have been dreaming about for quite some time.
Why the name you might ask? Honey has many biblical foundations The word, honey, is mentioned over 50 times in the bible. If the bible is God’s inspired Word, honey must be good!
The Promised Land to the Israelites was described as a land flowing with milk and honey.
In the bible, honey was a sign of the abundance, ease, and prosperity to be found in different places.
Honey in the bible was a symbol of good health for Samuel.
“When they went into the woods, they saw the honey oozing out, yet no one put his hand to his mouth, because they feared the oath. But Jonathan had not heard that his father had bound the people with the oath, so he reached out the end of the staff that was in his hand and dipped it into the honeycomb. He raised his hand to his mouth, and his eyes brightened.” (1 Samuel 14:24-27)
Honey in the bible is considered an honored gift.
Considered one of the best products in the land, honey was often given as a gift for prosperity.
The Book of Wisdom extols the goodness of honey.
“My son, eat honey because it is good, And the honeycomb which is sweet to your taste.” (Proverbs 24:13)
John the Baptist survived on honey.
John the Baptist was a preacher on God’s final judgment and one who baptized followers who were repentant of their sins in preparation for their final judgment. He is said to have survived on locusts and wild honey.
Honey is referenced in the bible’s last book — Book of Revelation.
God’s Word is compared to honey from a honeycomb to show its sweetness. Honey most often symbolizes abundance and prosperity. It is a luxury and a delicacy, a product of the Promised Land that showed God’s abundant provision for his people. The sweetness of honey is used in the Bible as a metaphor for delight.
