How often do you eat? Do you eat a meal once a day? Maybe you do. Maybe you eat a few snacks throughout the day and a couple or three full meals. I know some people who have many small meals throughout the day. Our daily eating strategy is deliberate for many and for some just goes as they choose, but for all is a little bit different. However, for all it is present. Why?
We recognize that we MUST eat to live.
What if we developed the same recognition for our scripture intake? Jesus himself, while fasting in the desert and combatting the devil tells us of that truth.
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
Why don’t many of us believe it? Why do we often disregard and neglect our spiritual health so easily?
Today, examine your Bible time and scripture intake. What is your Bible devouring strategy? Trust God when He says that you need His word to truly live, and make a plan for improving your diet as needed.
