We are told that a bird can go nine days without food, a dog 20 days, a turtle 500, a snake 800 days, a fish 1,000 days and some insects 12,000 days. For man, 3 to 6 weeks is about the limit. Sooner or later nourishment is necessary for all God’s creation.
Have you noticed we are not asked often to “read” the Word of God? Father we are urged to study it, meditate upon it and compare spiritual things with spiritual things. In other words, God wants us to put in consecrated effort, when we approach the Scriptures, for in this way we will more readily assimilate its sweet nourishment and good doctrine.
Many are starving to death spiritually, not because food is unavailable but simply because they will not eat of it. What homes does not have a Bible or opportunity to attend worship? A Bible on a shelf is of no more value than foot in the refrigerator. Feed your soul.
“Grow in grace, and in knowledge of our Lord and Savior.” 2 Peter 3:18
