I write this topic of bitter and sweet and I present it in the name of the resurrected Jesus Christ, who’s I am, and, whom I serve. And at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow, and, every tongue will confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord.


As I reflect upon this week’s topic of Bitter and Sweet, I thought I would search Webster for a definition. And then on second thought I decided that I would give my own meaning. My definition of Bitter; is leaving a foul taste in ones mouth or soul after eating of the forbidden fruit, the fruit could be a word or deed that has been allowed to come into contact with oneself. As it is written, “ Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words, “ Ps 64:3, Words if used wrongly can not only cause you harm, but can be quite injurious to another. So when one has a choice between words that buildup instead of tearing down, one should always chose the choice that shows love towards the other person as well as oneself. As it is written, “ Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.” Prov 16:24, I started to give a definition on sweet, instead I thought we all would benefit most immensely if we went to the source. As it is written, “ How sweet are thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth. “ Ps 119:103, That’s it! No more needs to be said, you want bitter in your life? Say and do the wrong things. You want the sweet? keep the Lords word in your mouth and on your heart. That’s my definition of Bitter and Sweet.

Some good scriptural references on bitterness and sweetness. Check out the meaning and standards on the words "who's, whose, and whom". You might need to edit here. Also when using quotes, don't leave a space between them and the following words.

Keep writing and enjoy the art.

Nicely done! I see someone's already beat me to the notation of Bible, always having a captial "B". Good job with this.
