Plan Your Spiritual Diet For 2014

Matthew 4:4
[Jesus] answered, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'"
Do you have a plan yet to feed your soul in 2014? Here is a great list of really helpful options. This is not a box-checking, belt-notching issue. This is not a earn-brownie-points-with-God issue. This is a soul health issue. This is a "Will I live a barren, chaff-like existence or fruitful tree-like existence in 2014?" issue.

If you're not a big reader, there are plenty of audio options available. Biblegateway.com is a good one, with audio available on several versions. You can even subscribe to your daily Bible reading in podcast form (see again this link to learn how to do it). You can really leverage the audio option if you've got any kind of commute above 5 minutes.

Believe it or not, it only takes 75 hours to listen to the entire Bible! In other words, if your commute is 15 minutes one way, you could listen to the entire Bible...in one year...listening on only the inbound or outbound leg of the journey! Or, how long does it take for you to make the coffee and eat breakfast? 15 minutes? One year. The whole Bible. Over breakfast. The news can wait.

Isaiah 55:1-3:
Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food. Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live...
