I’ve always been a fast eater . . . greedy. LOL I’m not sure why, but instinctively I take big bites, chew 3 or 4 times, and then swallow. Here’s a gif to give you a visual. 😀
Funny and quite embarrassing, but very true. I have to purposely take small bites and chew several times before swallowing. I’m sure you know, chewing is an important part of digestion. As we chew the food, it mixes with saliva which carries a digestive enzyme called amylase . . . yada yada yada. LOL Keeping it simple, the more we chew our food, the more we get out of it. We lower our risk of indigestion and we absorb more nutrients.
The same is true about the bible. The more we study and meditate on God’s word, the more we absorb. There’s power in God’s word. Through that power we have the ability to change and be likeminded with Christ. Listening to sermons and reading the bible is good. No doubt about it. We need to also devote more time to the word (CHEW ON IT!) to get more out of it. I’m not exempt. I’m . . .
Just blogging it out . . . OH and Happy Monday Night!! 😀
