Is your spiritual health robust or weak and faltering in this world?
Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: (1 Peter 2:1-2 KJV)
We are to seek a balanced spiritual diet which only flows from God through faith unto a softened and pliable heart, not prone to detrimental anger and hypocrisy, bringing about spiritual growth and sound maturity in all things of God.
God desires that mankind feast upon the milk of His Word in a daily spiritual banquet of His Word. A proper spiritual diet consists of ingesting truths of His Word balanced by the study of the context within the whole canon of scripture. Often people desire to pick and choose the biblical truths they want to put to work in their life while leaving behind other commandments and precepts they are not fond of. Doing so is not a balanced approach to scripture causing spiritual weakness and indigestion. Those who desire to please God by honoring and glorifying Him feed upon all the truths of His Word with a softened heart and open eyes and ears bringing about a new life fueled by the quickening alive of a dead spiritual existence in their heart honoring and glorifying God.
When man makes biblical feasting all about God his spiritual diet is balanced and nourishing to his soul. When mankind is choosy and hypocritical in spirit lightly esteeming the partaking of scripture his diet is lacking proper sustenance and his spiritual health falters and fails in the trials of life. Robust spiritual health is accomplished when mankind consumes with eagerness the pure milk of God’s Word putting it with strong faith in the promises of God.
