Being spiritually “fed” in 2018

Do you want to be spiritually “fed”?

If so, here’s a newsflash.

People today have more access to spiritually-enriching resources than at any other time in human history.

A hundred years ago, if you wanted to learn more about your faith, in addition to calling on God and engaging in the traditional spiritual disciplines, you have could read the Bible, gone to a worship service, or perhaps ordered a book through snail mail.

Today, not only can you do those things, but you can…

  • Access thousands of studies, sermons, podcasts or blogs online
  • Access any number of free devotionals (like this one)
  • Listen to a wide range of stations on the radio or channels on T.V.
  • Access an untold number of books about every single topic imaginable (either through the library, a bookstore, or the web). You don’t even have to wait for a hard copy—you can just download the e-version.
  • Plus, whatever your interests, there’s probably an app for that.

Proverbs 18:15 says, “An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.” Did you see that? An intelligent heart ACQUIRES knowledge, it SEEKS wisdom.

In other words, it goes out and gets it.

  • Maybe you need inspiration to chase your dreams. If so, look up Mark Batterson’s “Chase the Lion.”
  • Maybe you want re-frame how you think about worry. If so, Max Lucado’s “Anxious for Nothing” might be for you.
  • Perhaps Tim Keller’s “The Reason for God” will answer some of your itching questions.
  • What if Margaret Feinberg’s “Fight Back with Joy” which talks about her own battle with cancer would offer some help.
  • Or download the app about parenting from Parent Cue.
  • Or… or… or…

Today, we have access to more spiritually-enriching resources than at any other time in human history.

Isn’t it wonderful that you and I get to benefit?

Look, seek, acquire. And be stronger—and wiser—as a result.
