Depending on your eating habits…here is some good news.

The new Hostess Company just announced that it was reopening bakeries and would again begin producing Twinkies and HoHos possibly as early as late May.  If you remember, the old Hostess Company filed for bankruptcy back in 2012 and has now been purchased by a private equity group that will resume production quickly.

Truth be told, while Twinkies and HoHos are good to eat, they just are not good for you.  They are essentially a lot of sugar with very little substance.

I have noticed over time that there are a lot of things in life that are the same way; they have great packaging, and they offer the promise of lasting fulfillment, however,  they just do not deliver.

On the other hand, God is way more than just great packaging!  He offers lasting fulfillment, and He delivers EVERY TIME!

Psalm 34:8-10 says, “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack!  The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.”

So today, think “Substance” and not just “Sugar” and you will see the Lord’s goodness; you will consume his refuge, and you will bask in the buffet of good things.

Now that is a good word in a junk food world!
