There is a truck stop about 2 hours north of my town that claims that they have great food. Their advertising slogan is “World’s Best Diner”. They are so certain of this claim that they have the phrase painted on their roof in huge letters that can easily be seen from the highway and quite likely from passenger planes.
What is ironic is that the place is closed and apparently has been for some time. There are no cars or trucks parked on the lot and weeds are growing unchecked.
Evidently the food wasn’t quite the best in the world, or they probably would have been able to stay in business. If you are going to advertise that you have good food, you had better be prepared to back up that promise.
Most churches will tell you that they serve up the word of God in a way that satisfies people’s spiritual hunger. We should do everything in our power to make sure that this is true. We need to serve up the best spiritual food possible. The sermons and lessons should be based on the Bible and relevant to people’s lives. As the congregation spreads out into the community during the week, the members should speak God’s truth into as many lives as they can. This spiritual food is vital for people’s survival. Let’s keep serving it up!
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”—Matthew 5:6.
