Be The Nourishment!

"The lips of the righteous nourish many"....
Proverbs 10:21a NIV

Are you a fruit salad or a dozen doughnuts? Are you a warm bowl of oatmeal or a package of twinkies? Are you a bran muffin or a brownie? Are you beginning to wonder where I'm going with this post? This is not a post about what you're craving... or, maybe it is?

Do you bring "nourishment" into people's lives when you're around them?

So many times we can complain about how bad the world is around us instead of choosing to bring to the world what we hope to see! So, the next time that you feel a complaint exiting your mouth, choose to serve up a colorful crispy salad instead!

"Be the change you want to see in the world" ~ Ghandhi

Because of the power of the Holy Spirit living in us, we can bring good into our world today!

"So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up." Romans 14:19 NLT


  1. What comes to mind when I read this is, Love fully and be involved!

    1. Yes, building up a loving Christ centered community... thank you so much for sharing back Pixels!

  2. What a delightful and yummy post...really hit the spot!

  3. Thanks Diane... it kind of makes me hungry! :)

  4. It is so easy to "be quick to speak" without considering the consequences...and much harm has been done. To speak a kind word, to do a good deed, to be a light in a place of darkness will make a "big difference" and we will be doing what Jesus instructed us do...and it feels so good. I want to be a "fruit salad!!"

  5. Oh wow, Amy, I love that! I want to nourish the ones I encounter and not be a quick sugar high from which they will quickly crash. The difference is whether they're feeding on me or Him!
