Hunger for Growth

The path to spiritual growth leads straight through hard things.  Look at this passage in today’s reading (Proverbs 25-27):

Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy. One who is full loathes honey, but to one who is hungry everything bitter is sweet.  Proverbs 25:5-7 ESV

What hard thing do you need to do today?  Maybe it is to rebuke a friend.  Or do you need to be more receptive and grateful for a friend who seems to be wounding you.  A hungry person will eat the bitter thing and be nourished by it.

Hard things bring growth if you are hungry to grow.  Stay hungry, my friend.

[For more reflections on this passage, see the corresponding reading in my book Cover to Cover: Through the Bible in 365 days].
