Why do you spend your money on junk food, your hard-earned cash on cotton candy? Listen to me, listen well: Eat only the best, fill yourself with only the finest. Pay attention, come close now, listen carefully to my life-giving, life-nourishing words. Isaiah 55:2-3 MSG

We know the health benefits of eating real food grown on a plant rather than manufactured in a plant. Real food is medicine; junk food is toxic.

God says the same is true in the spiritual realm: his Word is real food for our souls. It renews our minds and replenishes our spirits. We need it in our daily diet.

Consider making a plan to read a portion of one of the Gospels, one of Paul’s letters, or a psalm each morning or before you go to bed.

God invites us back to spiritual food that will make our souls flourish. “God’s Word is better than a diamond, better than a diamond set between emeralds.

You’ll like it better than strawberries in spring, better than red, ripe strawberries” (Psalm 19:10 MSG).

How can you feed your soul and body today?

Food for Thought: God’s words are truly life-giving and life-nourishing, real food for the hungry soul.
