What feeds your soul?

“But if Judgment Day isn’t hidden from the Almighty, why are we kept in the dark?… The poor, like stray dogs and cats, scavenge for food in back alleys.” Job 24:1,5

My dog has become a finicky eater. Daisy was rescued after hanging around my son’s yard in central Phoenix. She was matted and frightened, and it took days of feeding her before Mike could get take her to the veterinarian to be examined for a chip. You would think a dog that had such a humble beginning would eat anything you put in front of her.

My daughter Karen kept Daisy for me for a period and tells me Daisy ate her dry food as long as she put some water on it. So, I tried this method, but Daisy avoided the soggy mess. I concluded, “When she gets hungry enough, she’ll eat what’s in her bowl.”

What does it take to spice up your soul life? For me, I need regularly to attend worship services. Some people say they don’t need the community of believers to grow in their faith. I do. I feed off other church members by observing the Holy Spirit working with them and by hanging out with them before and after church.

It’s a simple diet—get up and get ready for church. I’m always glad I do.

God, give us a foretaste of the feast to come when we attend a worship service. Amen.
