Junk Food

I confess, I am a junk food junkie! As far as I am concerned chocolate is a food group in its own right, along with coffee and chicken the three cs I call them!

The only problem with this is that the more junk food I eat, the more I get a taste for it. Has that ever happened to you? Its a vicious cycle the more you eat the more you want. And what happens if you decide to quit eating junk food and eat healthy foods like fruit, vegetables, and cut down on the refined sugars? Very often that first apple will taste bitter, not palatable at all. And the vegetables taste bland. Sad isnt it?

Have you ever met someone who confessed to loving God, but battle to read His Word? I just cant get into it. Or Its not exciting, they say.

They have had a steady diet of junk food of the things the world offers in terms of entertainment, things that look good, but leave them wanting more. You might get filled up drinking sodas and eating fast food and candy, but there is absolutely no value to those things. In the same way, you can get filled up with parties, TV, books, and movies and find at the end of the day there is absolutely no value to them.

Moving from the junk to the good is hard. It takes a retraining of the taste buds, a commitment to staying with what is good and healthy. But look at the Word of God good words are like honey, sweet to the taste. (Proverbs 16:24)


If you have a steady diet of put-downs, sarcastic comments and snide remarks, the first time you get honey in the form of kind words, it can often be overwhelming. The first time you read the Word of God, it can be so foreign to you that it is not exciting. And yet it is those words that save you, and are good for you!

Today as you go through your day, remember your words are not only good for others, but for you! And you can only speak good words when they are seasoned with the Word of God!
