I find it gut-wrenching any time I hear news about famines occurring in third-world countries and while I’m grateful to live in a country that has never seen food shortages to this scale, and in no way do I want to minimize the tremendous needs of the famine-stricken countries, I can’t help but make a comparison to the spiritual famine pervading many Canadian lives. Our country is wealthy and healthy, so why are so many people starving spiritually?
Part of the reason is because we’re eating the wrong food. We seek to satisfy our spiritual hunger with earthly things. First John 2:15-16 warns, “Do not love the world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.”
It’s to these people Jesus says, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty” (John 6:35). It’s only through faith in Christ Jesus we are spiritually nourished.
