Food for Thought~daily Meditations 04-07
FRIDAY , APRIL 07, 2006
You are reading from the book Food for Thought.
Appetite grows as it is fed. The more we eat, the more we want to eat. If we let any physical appetite take over--whether it is for food, sex, security, or whatever--we become its slave.
If we do not nurture our relationship with our Higher Power so that God is the ultimate authority for everything that we do and the object of our greatest desire, then we will be enslaved by one or more of our physical appetites. When God is perceived to be the greatest good and the source of all joy and satisfaction, then physical appetites fall into their proper place.
First we seek spiritual growth. Our primary desire is to do God's will for us, as He enables us to do it. When He is our Master, His love feeds our spiritual appetite and we begin to know the inner peace and satisfaction which the world cannot give.
May my desire be always for You.
