A Daily Devotion for Thursday, December 9

1 Peter 2:1-3

Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

To have everything we need, right at our fingertips is such a joy. God made sure we had the written account to refer to. After Jesus walked the earth, his disciples and many, many others contributed to tell the story of what they saw and experienced. This “spiritual food” tells me how to stay on track. There should be no room in me for “malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy or slander.”

Father God, help me to stay on your path, and to grow in love and faith. You have provided me the spiritual food I need for that growth. Help me to take it in, and benefit from every bit of it. Amen
