Dark Chocolate is Good for You!

It is true!  I knew it!  In a Good Houeskeeping edition, it stated, “…in a new study, a daily nibble of dark chocolate cut risk of heart attacks and stroke by 39 percent.”

I don’t know about you, but that is more than enough to convince me to eat more dark chocolate!  I mean really…it is helping my heart!

What I’ve found is that I’ve acquired a taste for dark chocolate.  I was not thrilled with the very first bite of it I took.  However, the more of it I eat, the more I like it, and the less I like milk chocolate.  Dark chocolate is richer.

This kind of reminds me of God’s word.  It really has the answers for life.  When I “eat” the real thing, I want more of it.  I even crave it at times. When I eat an imitation, like a self-help book, it just doesn’t satisfy in the same way and it is not lasting.

So, when you eat a treat, think of what really satisfies and fill up with something great!  Ask God to give you a craving  for His word.

  1. Yes! I’m still sold on dark chocolate over milk chocolate… but I definitely agree with the richness of the Word! I may have to give dark chocolate another chance… ha!
