Over-Fed but Under-Nourished

Over-Fed but Under-Nourished

In America when we hear the term “MAL-Nourished” we tend  to think “STARV-ation”. Yet MAL-Nourished doesn’t suggest starvation but rather badly fed. Or simply BAD food choices. Which, can yield the same results as starvation.

1 Timothy 4:6

Paul warned Timothy that in the last days there would be many who will sub come to weak and erroneous doctrines and teachings. He instructs the young pastor to be sure to instruct the brethren on those things and that in doing so Timothy will be “nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.”

Food Choices

We know that what you eat is just as important as eating itself. Being “full” on twinkles is not the same as having had a balanced meal. The balanced may not be as appealing to the eye or as exciting as junk food but in the end the body will be much better nourished. The spiritual word you get is no different. You can get a word that’s exciting and full of promises of quick change and ready blessings, but that’s not always the case. We need in this age a biblically balanced word that nourishes us and strengthens us to endure life challenges and twists.

Take a good honest look at what you’re eating spiritually. Are you eating regularly? Most Christians struggle ego make it to Sunday worship and definitely can’t find the time to attend bible study, but that’s when the real food is prepared.
