Acquired Tastes

Are you familiar with the concept of an acquired taste? Perhaps there are things that you did not care to eat as a child. Your parents may have insisted that you eat it against your will, saying that it was good for you. You can grow to genuinely enjoy these things as an adult and seek them out. This is an acquired taste. Are there activities of the Kingdom that you do not naturally enjoy? Are you in a dilemma because you know they are good for you even though you have no innate desire to do them? I ask you for obedience. If you purpose in your heart to obey me and attend to prayer and the study of my word and worship and all the things of my Kingdom then you will develop an acquired taste for righteousness and genuinely enjoy these things.
