Spiritual Food

1 Peter 2:1-3
Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation, if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.

The experiences of Isaac’s sons lead directly into a vitally important principle derived from eating: the assimilation of knowledge into the mind, especially the knowledge of God by which we grow. Everybody knows the truism, “We are what we eat.”  Our body can work only with the food it is given.  Aware of it or not, junk-food junkies run a constant risk of destroying their physical health.  They abuse their bodies by not giving themselves the materials they need to function well over a long period.  What tastes good on the tongue may not support good health.

The Bible expands upon this, teaching us that feeding the mind runs parallel to this truism.  The mind can work only within the quality and quantity of what we provide it in the way of genetics, formal instruction, examples of other people’s lives, and personal experiences digested and assimilated through thoughtful meditation.

May you be blessed by the hearing of the Word of God! 🙂
