Hunger pangs

"Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy?  Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare."  -Isaiah 55:2

I am reading these words hungrily this morning, as I am watching the sun rise over Lee Creek.  If I were a starving person and I was handed $10, wouldn't I buy bread instead of a new purse?  Instead of favor with men?  Instead of highlights in my hair?  Hunger would drive me.

May hunger drive me today.  May I notice that I am starving.  May The Bread of Life be my only craving.
