`Food 4 Thought`

Many of us when we rise in the morning we start the day with running to the kitchen to get that first cup of coffee or hot tea? Then after that we get into our routine for how the rest of the morning will flow.

We are creatures of habit, aren’t we? Any type of break from our routine makes us freak out. You might think that you aren’t, but we do. For instance, we say something like, “I haven’t had my coffee yet” now what type of statement is that really?”

Why are we basing what we do by having our coffee first before we can do anything?

Does one need to have that cup of joe before they can think or move? When we make statements like this we are saying, that cup of coffee will decide the day you will have? It’s sad that we put so much priority into a cup of joe.

Imagine what would happen if we reached for the bible first in the morning before the coffee. Imagine what would happen if we prayed first before we had that coffee or tea?

Think about it for Monday is tomorrow and many of us will reach for coffee first before we reach for GOD!

  1. I feel exactly the same way… I can’t stand those quotes people post about “but first, coffee” or “coffee is life.” It’s really not that great. For me, I am more of a morning green tea drinker. But I can go a day without it. I tend to read my Bible in the evening before bed, but I know it would be best to do so right when I wake up. Gotta work on that. Thank you for posting this!

  2. Amen! Actually the 2, I mean 3, usually go together for me—coffee, the word & prayer. But as much as I encourage others to daily morning devotions with God, I somehow don’t seem to do it enough myself. It’s a constant battle between the temporal and that which is eternal, and we can’t neglect that which is of greater importance even for a moment. Great post, Blessings.

    1. Sheldon I believe it’s a constant battle for us all. That is why we have to do it even when we don’t feel like it. I know it can be hard, I don’t always do it myself. That is why I do it in the morning, for it is much easier for me and it helps to set my day. What I have found out is that when I don’t do it in the morning my day goes wired. And then I remind myself that I didn’t read my word so I can’t complain when I didn’t get my instructions for the day.

  3. I am so happy to have found your blog! I have to admit, I LOVE Coffee with my morning devotions! It is always wise to remember, we cannot live on coffee but solely on His Word 🙂 I look forward to reading your blog daily!

    1. Hello Nancy. When I use to drink coffee I would read my bible as well. I appreciate you for reading and commenting. Have an amazing day in the Lord
