Canada proudly produces 85 percent of the world’s maple syrup! No wonder our flag has a maple leaf on it! Maple syrup’s list of ingredients is really short: maple syrup! Yes it is pure indeed!
In contrast, how pure are we? Does the Holy Spirit invade every area of our life or do we refuse to let him into certain parts of our life? Don’t be discouraged. It takes 40 litres of maple sap to make one litre of syrup. God is busy boiling us down into purity.
And I will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God. (From Zechariah 13:9, KJV)
A serving of maple syrup contains a load of magnesium, vitamin B and zinc. When we are refined as silver/maple syrup, we will be full of the goodness that flows over into those around us. And like honey, our words are to be maple syrup sweet for Jesus.
How sweet are thy words unto my taste; yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth. (Psalm 119:103, KJV)
Prayer – Lord, change us Lord so that we might be sweet for you under any circumstances. Amen
