1 Peter 2:1-3
Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
Peter, the foremost disciple of Jesus, calls the church to an entirely different way of living life. Our new birth into the spiritual life is to draw us into the insatiable desire of all that is good and godly. Because of our relationship with Jesus we can experience the life-giving sustenance that brings true satisfaction while the rest of the world strives on the brink of spiritual starvation.
Lord, thank you that you are a good God and offer in abundance your goodness to me. Please create in me a hunger for what is right and remove from me the craving for the nourishment of this world. Help me the think, say, and act on only what is right in your eyes and uplifting to others. I want to honor you. Amen.
