Forgotten Treasures 2: Feeding Habit

Read your Bible

Pray every day

Pray every day

Pray every day

Read your Bible

Pray every day

If you want to grow.


We know this song.

We want to grow.

But we do not read our Bible or Pray everyday.

It doesn’t work that way.

We desire to grow strong and healthy bodies and we know that it is required that we eat a balanced and adequate diet in quantity and quality EVER DAY. (My friends quarrel with me when I don’t eat well!) We know that eating boosts immunity and protects us from many illnesses.


But who fooled us into believing that we can manage Spiritual growth without daily feeding at the fountain of life. What makes us think we can get by this journey of faith without consistent prayers, study and meditation of God’s word in order to obey?

We take three (or more!) square meals a day, and frequent snacks here and there, but we take one or two cold spiritual snacks a week?

Spiritual growth doesn’t work that way.

Please, reconsider your options: Fix your feeding Habit or you break down pretty soon.

Supporting scripture:

Jos 1:8: Always remember what is written in the Book of the Teachings. Study it day and night to be sure to obey everything that is written there. If you do this, you will be wise and successful in everything.  (NCV)

Happy Sunday,
