SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL HONEY MONTH!!
BENEFITS OF HONEY
Honey offers a great deal of Health Benefits such as antioxidants, powerful healing products and aids digestive problems. Our family mixes Honey with a cup of hot water and fresh lemon juice for sore throat issues and congestion. You can add Honey to suit your taste but it usually only takes about 1 tbsp. The grandkids call it "Bear Juice" because of the little bear container you buy at the store. The "Best Choice" of Honey is the Pure (non-filtered) Raw Honey from your local area.
There are several Bible scriptures relating to Honey, here are a few:
Proverbs 16:24 Kind words are like honey-sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
Proverbs 24:13 My child, eat honey, for it is good, and the honeycomb is sweet to the taste.
Proverbs 25:16 Do you like honey? Don't eat too much of it, or it will make you sick! (remember honey is pure sugar, even though it is good for us, you have to set some limits on how much you eat).
Proverbs 25:27 Just as it is not good to eat too much honey, it is not good for people to think about all the honors they deserve.
