The description of the Promise Land as “the land that floweth with milk and honey” pictures it as a land of prosperity and abundance. Milk was part of the Hebrews’ staple diet and honey was considered a delicacy.
The Israelites were hoping to have “instant” results when they were told about the Promised land. Instead God wanted them to savor the moments that He had with them.
Where are you hoping for instant results in your Christian life; victory over a habit… knowledge of God’s word… spiritual maturity? God’s way is not rush, rush , rush but little by little. Look for a small but significant step of growth you can take today: a verse to memorize, a command to obey, a promise to treasure.
