God's Word has life, gives life, and nourishes life. We should have appetites for the Word
just like hungry newborn babes! We should want the pure Word, unadulterated, because this
alone can help us grow
When I was a child, I did not like to drink milk (and my father worked for the Borden
Dairy!), so my mother used to add various syrups and powders to make my milk tastier. None
of them ever really worked.
It is sad when Christians have no appetite for God’s Word but must be "fed” religious
entertainment instead. As we grow, we discover that the Word is milk for babes— and strong
meat for the mature.
Today's verse: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of
the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4).
Other Scripture: Psalm 119:103; 1 Corinthians 3:1-4; Hebrews 11-14; 1 Peter 2:2.
Action assignment: Ask God to give you a greater appetite for His written Word, the Bible.
