TOPIC: FEED FOR LIFE AND FITNESS
TEXT:1 SAMUEL 30:11-20
MEMORY VERSE: “And they gave him a piece of a cake of figs, and two clusters of raisins: and when he had eaten, his spirit came again to him: for he had eaten no bread, nor drunk any water, three days and three nights” (1 SAMUEL 30:12).
Fitness therapy is becoming popular because of the growing health challenges of people. Also, people now have more awareness of the need to keep fit to face the challenges of life. Due to this, special diets are recommended by fitness experts and medical personnel for people to take to keep healthy and fit.
On David’s return from the battle field, he discovered that the Amalekites had invaded his abode, Ziklag, and burned it with fire. They also abducted their women and took their property. While pursuing the invaders, they found a sick servant of an Amalekite whom they gave food and water to regain his strength and health. He later led them to the camp of their enemies whom they defeated and recovered all they lost. There are lessons to derive from the story. God’s children need to feed well on a balanced diet to be healthy to do their work and serve God effectively. Also, for spiritual growth and strength to triumph in battles of Christian life and ministry, believers must feed daily on the Word of God.
QUOTE: Feed daily on the Word of God.
