Isn’t it amazing how much we focus on food? We get up and think about breakfast, we go through the morning wondering what to eat for lunch, we look forward to eating dinner. So much emphasis, thought and money are devoted to food. Obviously we need food to survive. Our body needs food for energy.
If only we would put that much thought into our spiritual food. Our spirits need nourishment to survive. That can come from many ways. We can feed on the words that were inspired by God in his written word. We can feed on words that come to our spirit through the living, inerrant word of God which is Jesus. We can be fed from circumstances, friends, brothers and sisters in Christ. God can and does speak to us in many ways, and his words are spiritual food to our souls.
There is nothing wrong with food and the importance we place on it for our bodies. More importantly, we should be just as concerned about the spiritual food that is needed for our spirits to function as God intended.
