Morning by morning he wakens me
and opens my understanding to his will.
When my father was teaching me how to drive, he stressed maintenance. He pulled the dipstick, showed me how to check the oil, and said I should check it every time I got gas. “Oil is cheap, engines are expensive!” he said.
Ken Stegall does some of the best preaching I’ve ever heard. He drives a sheep-feeding pulpit; serves a gourmet meal for his congregants every Sunday.
But Ken doesn’t think that’s enough—seems to believe if a person only eats once a week, regardless of how nutritious that meal is, it won’t be long until they’re skin-and-bones. So he pushes his people to be daily Bible readers—wants them to get their veggies every day.
That’s maintenance that will keep your spiritual engine running smoothly.
A breakfast of the Word is the
most important meal of the day.
