Our Daily Bread

Matthew 4:4

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 4:4         

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”      

Just like bread (food) supports life to your body, the Word of God supports life to your soul. Your body can’t go too long without nourishment. Without food for prolonged periods your body becomes weak. It’s the same for your soul, without regular nourishment your soul too becomes weak. God provided manna to the Israelites satisfying their hunger and in doing so, saved them. Just like the manna nourished the Israelites, the Holy Bible is available to you to nourish your soul and save you. Additionally, good nutrition helps you to grow strong, is part of a healthy lifestyle and helps to fight off disease. The Word of God also helps you to grow strong, to live a healthy lifestyle and to fight off sin and temptation. Jesus Himself, was tempted by the devil and in response He quoted scripture. But if you don’t know scripture how can you use it to fight the schemes of the devil? If you want to grow stronger spiritually, nourish your soul by reading the Word of God daily.

Stop Comparing Yourself

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 6:4 (NLT)         

Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else.   

Don’t fall into the enemy’s trap of comparing yourself to anyone else. Comparing yourself to someone who is better off than you can cause you to become jealous or envious. Likewise, comparing yourself to someone who is not doing as well as you could cause you to become vain and prideful. Just concern yourself with your own actions and conduct but if you are determined to compare yourself, compare yourself to Christ. Focus on being the best person you can be by following the example of Jesus Christ and live your life according to God’s Word.
