A Fat Soul

Proverbs 10:3
It has been rightly said that you and I are a soul with a body. The world is only concerned with the wants of the body, so people neglect the wants of the soul. But Christians understand that it’s the soul that leaves the body at death and passes into eternity. It is because of this, that God denies the appetites of the body (the flesh) and instead feeds the soul with the nutrients that are pleasing to Him—integrity, humility, self-control, the fear of the Lord, wisdom, understanding, and discretion. If you’re a Christian, seek after these godly virtues, and be assured that God will not withhold them if you cry out for them. He will not allow the soul of the righteous to famish, so do what Scripture says: let your soul delight itself in fatness. Father, please give me an appetite that will result in a fat soul.
