Feeding Your Soul

I was doing some reading this evening in the book quoted below, which brought the apostle Paul’s words from Philippians to mind. I think they go together well.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable— if there is any moral excellence and if there is anything praiseworthy— dwell on these things. — Philippians 4:8

“Take a break from social media, put down your smartphone, and stop reading the news. Your soul has an appetite, feed it with goodness. Your mind is hungry, feed it wisely too. It’s much like a muscle in that, if you don’t use it, you will lose it . . . Read scripture and talk through your day with God. You’ll be amazed at how your sleep is affected by what you fill your mind and heart with before bed.” — Joy McMillan, SOZO: Embracing The Hard + Holy Road To Wholeness in a Quick-Fix World
