Our Daily Bread

11/26/14                     John          about 35
Would you rather eat one Thanksgiving-level feast once a week, or smaller, regular meals every day?  Common sense, and overindulging at Thanksgiving perhaps, reminds us that we need balance and pacing in so many things in life, and this includes reading the Bible as well.  A man at the grocery store whom I reached out to – John – told me he works 12-hour days and over 80 hour weeks, leaving no time to attend church or even read the Bible.  But the Bible, our spiritual food, doesn’t have to be an overwhelming task that can keep someone like John, with very limited time, from reading it at all.  It is best read in small portions, giving time for us to digest what we’ve read, to pray and meditate on it and to begin to put it into practice.  Our relationship with God requires two-way communication, and regular, daily prayer and Bible reading is so much better than a weekly “feast” that gives us more than we can handle in one sitting or, worse yet, only attempting to communicate with God when we are driven to desperation.  So I counseled John, and offer this advice here as well, to pray and take in God’s Word as a daily habit, for “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”  (Matt 4)
