Better cross an angry man than a hungry man. -Danish Proverb
For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Psalm 107:9
We enjoyed going to Grandma’s house growing up. There was always a pan of cat head biscuits waiting for us in the oven. Man, I can taste them now! A homemade biscuit with bacon and eggs, jam or jelly, or just a scoop of sausage gravy—SATISFACTION—YUM!
If you didn’t have a Grandma who cooked cat head biscuits for you, I’m sorry! You missed out! But much more important than any biscuit should be our hunger for the Lord. It starts at home; personal Bible study, meditation, scripture memory. It doesn’t stop there though; it’s going to Sunday School, Sunday Church Services, Mission Conferences, Revivals, Jubilees, even the Wednesday night service is part of satisfying the hungry soul.
One last thing though, when you have found somewhere good to eat, don’t you share it? Don’t you tell others where to get the best sushi, the best Chinese, the best Mexican? Sure we do! And so it should be with the Lord Jesus Christ! We need to share with every lost, dying and hurting soul where they can find help, hope, and Heaven! As one fella once said, “I’m just a beggar telling another beggar where to find bread!” That Bread is the Bread of Life! Are you hungry for it?
