Job 23:12 ESV "I have not departed from the commandment of His lips; I have esteemed the words of His mouth more than my favorite food"
Here’s something interesting. Well known chefs are teaming up to advocate for food waste reduction in the U.S. This food campaign encourages Americans to make simple lifestyle changes like making shopping lists, freezing food and using leftovers to reduce waste in the home. Every year, 40 percent of food in the U.S. is thrown away without getting eaten, contributing to the 1.3 billion tons of perfectly edible food that are lost or wasted worldwide annually.
Our scripture for today compares a love for natural food to a love for the Word. I have a few questions for you today, are you “eating” right? Are you eating a regular diet of the Word of God? Are the words you’re speaking wasted on negativity? Are they filled with doubt? Do you esteem Your time with the Word more precious than your basic natural necessities? Imagine your favorite food. Now imagine loving the Word of God, and enjoying it as much as and more than your favorite food.
Proverbs 4:22, says that His Word is "life to those who find them and health to all your flesh". Think about it, the Word of God will affect ALL your flesh, that's your physical body, that's all the natural areas of your life! Eating God’s Word daily is what will give you a healthy life. Whatever it takes, don’t go without a steady diet of God's Word. Make it your highest priority. Enjoy a God-meal today…it’s better ATE than never!
