Nourishment


When we come to church and go to our small groups we feast on the Word of God. Just like with real food, eating two times a week is not enough. We need to be fed everyday. God provided food called manna for Israel when they were wandering in the wilderness. Every morning they just had to go out and pick it up. We need to pick up our Bibles everyday and put it in ourselves through hearing, reading, studying, meditating, and memorizing Scripture.

He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. Deuteronomy 8:3

Think of it like this. If Jesus was in front of you and wrote something down specifically for you, would you want to know what it said? Of course! He has written something down especially for you. It’s His Word! Feast, dine, and be fed everyday from it. You’ll be healthier, wiser, and closer to Jesus.

Be wise today and always – be nourished through His Word to you.
