Feed Your Mind with God’s Word
By Rick Warren
“People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4 (NLT)
If you want a healthy mind, you must feed your mind with truth.
You know the importance of nutrition. Good food and good calories make you stronger and healthier and give you more energy. Bad calories and junk food harm your body. The same is true in your thought life. You must feed your mind not with junk or poison but with truth.
One time I had the privilege of lecturing at the University of Oxford. While there, I was invited to go to a meeting of Oxford Analytica—a group that has enormous influence in the world. Every day around 6 a.m., leading scholars would gather to get reports from all around the world about what’s happened in the last 24 hours, from crop prices rising in China to unrest in the Middle East. Then they would decide what needs to be said about it. By 11 a.m., a report would be given to groups that pay a lot of money for this information—such as governments and major corporations.
Oxford Analytica was founded on the idea that the best leaders make the best decisions when they have the best information. Even good leaders are more likely to make bad decisions if they don’t have good information.
To live the best life—the life God wants you to live—you need the best information too. And you’ll find that information in the Word of God.
God wants you to make the best decisions and receive his best for your life. You do that by feeding on the Word of God throughout your day, every day.
