I love going to the big warehouse stores like Sam’s Club and Costco!
The best time to go is on the days when they have vendors set up with little cooking stations.
As you pass by, the vendors offer you tasty morsels to sample.
The whole idea of this presentation is once you have a ‘taste’, you discover that it’s so good you want to have more!
Psalms 34:8 says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.” I love it when God’s Word uses terms I understand to explain Biblical truth! One good thing about wanting more of the Lord is that there are NO unhealthy consequences from indulging in “more”.
When I discipline myself to make healthy life style choices, I reap the physical benefits. When I discipline myself to make healthy spiritual choices, I reap the benefits of being spiritually stronger, healthier and more alert.
I need to plan for Bible study and prayer the same way I plan time for exercise. The discipline of choosing healthy food choices makes a healthy body. The discipline of spiritual choices makes a strong, effective witness and a successful life. Make a plan, stick to the plan, reap the benefits; it’s ALL good, “gotta get me some more of THAT”!
II Peter 1: 4-9 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.
