What happens when you don’t take proper care of your spiritual life? I recently found out the sickening effects of consuming your own stale spirituality. Have you ever eaten stale bread? Its disgusting. Hard and chewy at the same time. There is no semblance of enjoyment to this process. So is the same of when you decide to live off of a stale spiritual life. The words you think and worse yet the words you let fall from your lips feel distant and hollow. You chew on them but gain no flavor, no appealing textures. You are stuck with just the knowledge of what it is and nothing more.
What to do? What you know is best for you. It is different for everybody in execution. For me? Getting back into my old testament research. For someone else? Their daily psalm, proverb, rereading the gospel, journaling, painting, sketching, singing, building, talking to God, praying. I am sure the possibilities are as endless as the God we worship.
So lets garbage out stale spirituality and get ourselves something fresh and ready for consumption.
