I do not like to throw away food. Uneaten food is often placed in containers and stored in the refrigerator to eat on throughout the week. What will often happen, is some food is forgotten and when it is picked up later, it is not good for consumption.
Some of us store our Bible in a bible cover. We carry it around on Sunday, open it up, highlight the sermon scriptures, and make notes. When we get home the bible cover stays in the car or we take it in the house and place it down. What will often happen, is the food is forgotten. We do not consume the Word daily. We do not go back and read the scriptures/passages for ourselves. We do not digest the food.
We pick up the bible cover and head to church the following Sunday, spiritually hungry. Why?? There is no need to be hungry when you have the food with you. It is like saying you have nothing to eat, but there is frozen meat in the freezer; you have to prepare the food.
The recommendation this morning, stop storing your Bible in the cover and eat your food. It is strength for your mind, body, and soul. Open the container daily and partake of the fullness!! You will never be hungry or thirsty again.
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
