What did you have for breakfast this morning? I had OATMEAL! Not the instant kind, but the real deal, The stand-over-the-stove-and-stir cooked oatmeal. I added milk and a little brown sugar and almonds and dried fruit. YUMMY!
I don’t eat oatmeal just because it is a delicious breakfast it is also a powerhouse of protein, iron, and fiber. It gives my body energy, fills me up and helps me stay healthy.
It’s good for me and a good thing to do in the morning! Spending time with God in the morning is a whole lot like eating oatmeal for breakfast.
Just like oatmeal God’s word has its benefits…
It’s good for us. Nourishing us by teaching us, showing us where we are getting off track, feeding us the truth, and training us to be in right standing with God! And more!
God’s word is spiritual food! We need it to be spiritually healthy!
Just like breakfast, we need spiritual food in the morning to start our day off right and keep up fed!
Skipping breakfast is bad for our physical health and skipping time in God’s word is bad for our spiritual health.
So eat your breakfast and spend time with God daily!
It’s good for you!
This week’s verse to think about:
THY WORD IS A LAMP UNTO MY FEET AND A LIGHT UNTO MY PATH. Psalm 119:105
