Yes, a good meal does make a great difference. These children in Zambia, Africa are enjoying a delicious noon meal prepared by the African Encounter Team and other volunteers. They have had many days when the nourishment of good food was not available. In some cases, children have been known to eat things that were not good for them because they were so hungry.
Just as we desire good food for our body, we need to “feed” our inner person good, healthy, spiritual food. However, many times Christians are content to eat “junk food” mentally instead of feeding their mind and spirit good and healthy food. A great deal of time is given to all forms of media, books, magazines, and TV which feed the inner person which is the control center of life.
What kind of food have you been feeding your mind and inner person? Will this food make you a better Christian and give you a greater desire to serve the Lord? Are you closer to the Lord than a year ago?
It is always a wise thing to check the food we are eating in order to be sure it is not spoiled or will contaminate our body. So we also should be very careful what we are allowing to enter our mind, heart, and life.
Are you putting good and healthy thoughts, pictures, ideas, and desires into your mind and heart?
