Revelation 10

Revelation 10:10
I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it. It was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it my stomach was made bitter.
Sometimes things take a little while to set in. What first sounds like a juicy morsel can turn out to be a bit bitter. Information can be much this way. We meddle and pry to stay in the know. We try to connect the dots to solve a dark secret. We like to be privy to the latest goings on. And when we are finally informed, what at first seemed tantalizing, turns to gravel in our gut.
And we thought we needed to know that. Now we wonder, maybe it was better we didn’t. 
So be careful with your attitude regarding information. This is not to say don’t ever consume it. But when you do handle it with care and a little bit of reticence.
