Watch What You Eat

We all know the old saying “you are what you eat” and in a number of ways it’s true. Eating nutritious food will make your body healthier and like it or not, eating junk food is bad for your body.

The same is true for your spirit. Everyday you eat spiritual food. While you may not realize it, the things you hear, see, and experience are spiritual food. Whatever goes into your mind is the food your spirit feeds on.

In Matthew 4:4 Jesus says “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” and in Matthew 5:6 He says “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” When you dwell on God’s word, you are eating good spiritual food.

Likewise Jesus also says in Matthew 6:23 “But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”. Here Jesus is not talking about physical disability. He is talking about what you see and how you see it. If you fill your eyes with darkness, that darkness will fill you or if you see things in a negative light, that negativity will fill you. When you allow things into your mind that are not in tune with God’s will, you are eating bad spiritual food.

Think about these things as you decide what television shows or movies you will watch, what music you will listen to, and what books you will read.
