Healthy Souls

“The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on.” -J. G. Holland

Would you still eat cooked vegetables if you knew that every time you boiled them they lost almost all of their nutritional value?  People eat cooked vegetables that may taste better, thinking they are eating “healthy,” but instead they eat roughage with the vitamins and minerals cooked out.  Raw vegetables on the other hand retain 100% of the nutritional value.  Similarly, as Christians we may acquire a taste for watered down “Christianity.”  Like the tasty vegetable substitute, we would rather “feel good” than consume what our souls actually need, fully raw Christianity.  Today ask God for friends that will rebuke you when you sin and challenge you to get your heart right with God.  Ask God for vitamin-packed teaching that will change you from the inside out when you consume it.  Let’s get our souls healthy! 

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul (3 John 12, ESV).
