Chief Potato Peeler

A BRILLIANT STUDENT VOLUNTEERED to work at a church camp and ended up as chief potato peeler.

A friend who admired her intelligence said, “It’s too bad you had to end up peeling potatoes.”

She replied, “I don’t have to think about potatoes while I’m peeling them. I think about my Bible verse for the day.”

This young woman accepted God’s words and stored up His commands within her.

She “turned her ear to wisdom and applied her heart to understanding—calling out for insight and cried aloud for understanding, seeking it as for silver and searching for it as for hidden treasure….” (Proverbs 2:2-4)

Warren Weirsbe wrote, “What digestion is to the body, meditation is to the soul.”

The Psalmist said that “[God’s Word] is my meditation all the day.” (Psalm 119:97b)

Righteous people only have God on their minds twice in a 24 hour period: day and night.

Do you ever think about someone special in your life all day long? Try to reflect on God regularly throughout the day, by recalling his Word.

That only happens if you read it. Daily.

Do you?

* STEVE’S NOTE: This is day 7 of devotionals related to the importance of daily Bible reading. 7 more to go.

The first two weeks of every year I do whatever I can to encourage Christians to read their Bibles. That’s why I’m focused on this and trying to do it in a fun and interesting way every day.

If you are reading your Bible daily, will you please leave a comment? I’d be greatly encouraged. Thanks.
