Finding Life

Proverbs 8:35 says "For whoever finds Me, finds life and receives favor from the Lord."

What is your daily habit? Do you read the bible before breakfast? do you pray for 30 minutes before bed? do you attend bible studies and 3 services a week? Do you do this because it is your daily habit?

I was reading about how someone was feeling guilty about not reading their bible this week. God doesn't care if you read your bible 7 days a week because it's the right thing to do. He tells you to study His word so that you won't sin, because when you find Him you find Life, and the favor of God. He tells you to seek him. Not for justification through the law, but because through those things we receive a great benefit.

You don't eat, drink, or sleep because it is a habit. You do it because it is life. But God's word teaches you can't LIVE by bread alone. But by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. We can 'live' by sustaining ourselves on God's word. Even if it means a different kind of 'life'. Which bread are you hungry for today?
