A Balanced Diet
Our text for today will come from Job 23:12. …I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
We all like to eat and many live to eat instead of eating to live. Our food sustains us and keeps us going. However we need a balanced diet to maintain good health. That is we need our carbohydrates, protein, water, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and yes you need a certain amount of fat. These items are important for our physical bodies but our text says that the word of God is more important than the very food that we consume.
Why? The Bible is likened to a balanced diet.
Here are the verses.
Sweetener—Proverbs 24:13 and Psalm119:103.
Meat (Protein)—Hebrews 5:12-14. In this passage another item is mentioned and that is…
Milk—1st Peter 2:2.
Minerals—Psalm 119:9-10. Proverbs 25:11.
Water—Proverbs 25:25 and Ephesians 5:36.
May God help you to eat a balanced diet.
