Don’t Spoil Your Appetite

Taste and see that the Lord is good. —Psalm 34:8

Do you ever find you don’t have much of an appetite for the Word of God? Could it be you’re on a sugar rush from all the world has to offer?

Sometimes we’re like the children of Israel, bored with manna from heaven while thinking of the “onions, leeks, and garlic” they ate as slaves. But God was interested in more than satisfying their taste buds; He knew what would really nourish and sustain them for the years in the wilderness. He wanted to wean them from the short-lived, cheap thrills of Egypt so He could introduce them to the true joys of being fed by His hand and so He could cultivate in them a longing for the Promised Land.

If you want to increase your appetite for the Bible, try weaning yourself from the world’s diet. Put down your phone, shut down the computer, turn off the TV, and open the Bible. You might have some withdrawal symptoms, but in time you’ll find out the Word of God satisfies in a far deeper and more lasting way.
