Well-Balanced Reading

Today's Seeking Him from Nancy Leigh DeMoss was good...

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Almost every mom struggles to give her kids a well-balanced diet.

“It doesn’t matter what I cook! She only wants to eat pizza and peanut butter and jelly!”

Nancy: Do you know that we can approach the Bible just like a picky child?

(Yawn) “Oh, where was I? I guess I’ll just read a psalm—a short psalm.”

Nancy: Just as our bodies need a balanced diet, our spirits need the whole counsel of God’s Word. Some passages seem more appetizing than others. But if our diet consists mainly of the Psalms with a smidgen of the New Testament Epistles on the side, we just won’t grow as we should.

Paul reminded Timothy that “all Scripture is God-breathed and is profitable.” We need the Psalms and Epistles. But we also need the Old Testament books of the Law, history, the Prophets, and the New Testament Gospels.

Are you getting a balanced diet from God’s Word?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
