My oldest daughter is always preaching to us all that we need to drink more water. I was one that just hated to drink water. She said that the more you drink water the more you will crave it. You know she was right. I stopped buying Diet Coke and made water my go-to drink. I now crave water and it is so refreshing to me. It took time~ I won't lie. Water is vital and important for our health. Prolonged periods without water can lead to death. People in third world countries have to walk miles for this life-saving commodity.
God's Word is just like that. The more you read it, study it and make it a daily priority the more you will crave it. Just a cup-full of His Word daily can fill the empty void in our soul. A few minutes in His Word can give us the wisdom to make important decisions. It is refreshing to our souls and gives us joy in our journey. Without it, I just could not survive.
