Dealing with spiritual malnutrition
CAROLINE L. BELTRAN, Baguio City

We are creatures or living persons with all kinds of needs. We have few truly essential needs. Without oxygen, we would perish in minutes. We must have food and water. Our bodies, when exhausted require rest. In bad weather, we must look for shelter. As people who are needy, our basic needs are few.

However, when it comes to our desires and demands, there seems to be no limit. As of now, the entire advertising industry is concentrated and devoted to expanding our needs.

Questions arise when we overlook, neglect, or forget those basic needs. What about our need for the Bread of Life and the Living Water of God’s truth? What about our need for spiritual fellowship that gives us strength, hope, peace and comfort?

Have we been ignoring the Word of Jesus in Luke 4:4: “Man shall not live by bread alone.” Have we been neglecting to nourish our souls while following our desires or wants?”

“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need” is very close to Matthew 6:33.

The unclear dissatisfaction so many people experience is really spiritual malnutrition and thirst. Just as our physical body needs daily food, so does our spiritual body. Amen!
