There are two times I particularly don’t want to go grocery shopping – when I’m hungry and when I’m overly full. When I’m hungry, it seems like everything tries to jump in the cart. When I’m overly full, nothing looks good and I don’t buy it unless it’s already on the list (which often isn’t complete).
This is a simple illustration of what Proverbs 27:7 is saying. When my soul is satisfied IN HIM, even the seemingly sweet things of the world lose their appeal. When I’ve not been spending time with Him, when my soul is unsatisfied because I’ve slipped away from eating at His table, even the bitter things of the world start looking good.
