Have You Been Hungry Lately?

Numbers 11:4-6 (NIV)
"The rabble with them began to crave other food, and again the Israelites started wailing and said, 'If only we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost -- also the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic. But now we have lost our appetite; we never see anything but this manna!'"

Even though the Lord fed the Israelites with the bread from heaven, they were still hungry for more, so the Lord gave them meat. We as human beings experience spiritual hunger. If we partake of the spiritual food of God's Word we will never hunger again. The reason why the Israelites weren't satisfied is that they were not satisfied spiritually. They were seeking only physical satisfaction. They were seeking that which does not satisfy the soul.

Let's spend more time feeding on the Word of God and focus less on the pursuit of the physical things of life. While physical food is very important to the body, it only feeds the flesh. The Word of God feeds the longing we have deep in our souls.
