Not by bread alone

Have you ever read something or heard a phrase and at first your like yeah makes sense, but then you stop and think about it and your like wait what?

“Never say never” wait you just said it twice. “It’s raining cats and dogs out there” wait hold on I didn’t even know that possible! Okay so hopefully now you get the point and probably have a ton of odd sayings going through your head now.

But what about the Bible, because their are some things in there that don’t make sense if you think about them from a purely human stand point.

So “man shall not live by bread alone but by every word the comes form the mouth of God.” Right? But what does that mean because last time I try’d to just eat paper it didn’t work, I only lasted one day. Yeah I was in second grade, it was weird don’t worry about.

So how do we live by the word of God? I think it’s about checking every action to the word of God. It means when making a big decision Going to the Bible and getting God’s perspective. But the Bible doesn’t say if I should buy this truck or this sport car, or if I should buy this house. No but it does tell us to be a good steward of our money. It doesn’t say if you should go to that website or not but it does say that “if you look at a woman with lust in your eye you have already committed adultery with her.”

God’s word is powerful and we need to make sure that we are living by it and not our emotions. Your body needs bread but your soul and spirit need the word of God. So eat your food and read God’s word and check every action you make against God’s word because He will never ask you to do anything contrary to the Bible.
