Doh! nuts

Chapter 8 basically focuses on an illustration of bread. It talks about our need to get our daily bread from God, to feed on his word. He concludes the chapter talking about the spiritual famine that appears prevalent in Christianity, despite the vast sum spent on Christian products and programs.

So rather than enjoy a loaf of fresh, warm bread, we settle for day (or week) old donuts. Doh!

Praying through the scriptures has both enriched my prayer life and fed me spiritually.

Great thought. So often we just depend on someone else's take on what the Bible says. That can be very dangerous!
