Is the Word of God Ever Bitter?

God's Word should taste sweet to us, refreshing, nourishing and delightful.  His Word comforts and even makes us hungry for more.

Sometimes, tho' the Word may leave a bitter taste because it will also convict us of some attitude, or unloving action in our life.

For me, it's sometimes what has come out of my own mouth.  Words which have not been loving or spoken in haste.  Proverbs 16:24 tells us "Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones."

My prayer for you today is that you may say pleasant words to encourage someone and then find time to taste how sweet His Words are.  
    What is your sweetest tasting scripture?  Tell me in the comments.
