Honey in the lion-5

Proverbs 26:13 “The slothful man saith, [There is] a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets.”
Proverbs 26:14 “[As] the door turneth upon his hinges, so [doth] the slothful upon his bed.”
As we bring our meditation on this subject to a close, let’s see the end result of Samson’s feat:
Judges 14:8 “And after a while he returned to take her, and he turned aside to see the body of the lion, and behold, a swarm of bees and honey were in the body of the lion.”
Judges 14:9 “And he took thereof in his hands, and went on eating, and came to his father and mother, and he gave them, and they did eat…”
After sometime, Samson came round thinking he will see the decaying body of the lion but he saw something else. He saw within the body of the lion bees, then honey! Inside the body not outside, not around it, not beside it but right within it.
The enemy is very crafty, but I just love the courage of Samson. Seeing the lion was defeated, the devil turned on the bees! Friend, nothing can stop you. Inside all those ‘roaring challenges’ and ‘stinging bees’ is your honey. Don’t ever let them deter you from eating your honey.
If you have ever been stung by a bee, you’ll agree with me that it was not a pleasant experience. Bee stings can be painful, but I want you to know today that those same bees harbour your honey.Imagine conquering lions and now bees!
In the course of this study, I took another look at the bees producing honey and I quite agree with the term ‘busy bees’. The bees are about the busiest animals on earth. They work virtually all through life.
To produce a pound or about 0.5kg of honey, research shows that the bees have to fly a whoopping 88,000 kilometers apart from the fact that they visit up to 100 flowers per trip! Doing the maths: it takes about 556 foraging bees to visit 2 million flowers, just to make a pound(0.5kg) of honey! (To be continued)
