Here is what I found: Vitamins affect every part of our body, the way we see things, our hearts, our muscles, our nervous system, the way we develop and grow. Taking pills in the morning doesn't insure that all those things are in working order, it is just meant to be extra to help out on what you might miss out on during the day.
So what about spiritual vitamins? Do we take that time during the morning with the Lord as a supplement to what is already going on in our day, is it all we are getting, or maybe do we need to think about starting to take that "spiritual vitamin" each day.
Much like those pills that we take each morning, spiritual vitamins (or devotions) affect the way we see things, they affect our hearts, our minds, our nervous systems. They affect the way that we (and often our children) develop and grow. They don't insure that our walk with God is in perfect working order, they are just meant to give us a little extra boost, and help out on something that we might need, or mess later in the day.
While I was researching the importance of vitamins I came across an article called Do I need vitamin supplements Most of it was about taking the physical vitamins, but the first paragraph really impacted me. Unless I have a balanced spiritual life, I need to take my spiritual vitamins, and honestly, at this point in my life... I'm not even sure I know what a balanced spiritual life would look like... Do you?
My flesh and my heart may fail,But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
