“And there was a great famine in Samaria; and indeed they besieged it until a donkey’s head was sold for eighty shekels of silver, and one-fourth of a kab of dove droppings for five shekels of silver.” – 2 Kings 6:25
A depraved diet was the mark in this day of famine, and a depraved diet is the mark in our day. Only today, we have a spiritual famine.
Today we’re feeding on all sorts of depravity and filth. Do you know why pornographic magazines are read by so many? Why night clubs are filled with people? Because there’s a famine for the Word of God. And anytime a man is not properly fed, he’ll resort to feasting on a donkey’s head.
How do you change your diet, your cravings? Not primarily by saying, “I’m going to be a good boy.” Rather, by loading up on the Word of God, so you’ll not be hungry for that which corrupts yet doesn’t satisfy.
