The Mental Munchies

Isaiah 55:1-3 All you people who are thirsty, come! Here is water for you to drink. Don’t worry if you have no money. Come, eat and drink until you are full! You don’t need money. The milk and wine are free. Why waste your money on something that is not real food? Why should you work for something that does not really satisfy you? Listen closely to me and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the food that satisfies your soul. Listen closely to what I say. Listen to me so that you will live.

These days we have so many options to be entertained. And yet, not everything that pretends to be entertainment is good for us. In fact, some of it is downright poisonous. Eventually it has consequences.

I don’t know about you, but around four or five in the afternoon I get what we call in my neck of the woods, “the munchies.” You know that feeling – lunch seems like it was ages ago and dinner … well, it’s still a way off. What’s in the fridge? What’s in the pantry?

And for someone like me who has to watch what he eats, it’s so tempting, you know, to grab a packet of chips – full of salt and carbs, or chocolate – full of sugar, or something else that’s no good for me. And if you do that day after day, there are going to be consequences.

It’s the same with what we watch on television. You’re bored … what’s on? You flick through the channels with the remote and stop at whatever catches your eye. And if you do that day after day, there are going to be consequences. There has to be a better way. There is.

Isaiah 55:1-3 All you people who are thirsty, come! Here is water for you to drink. Don’t worry if you have no money. Come, eat and drink until you are full! You don’t need money. The milk and wine are free. Why waste your money on something that is not real food? Why should you work for something that does not really satisfy you? Listen closely to me and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the food that satisfies your soul. Listen closely to what I say. Listen to me so that you will live.

There has to be a better way. There is!

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
