Scripture:   Luke (NIV) 4:3  The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.: 
4  And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.’” 
Matthew 4:3  But he answered, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
Observation:    Jesus was being tempted by the devil.  The first avenue of temptation was to use his power as God to turn a stone into bread.   Jesus had just finished a 40 day fast and was hungry but he refused to follow the devil’s direction.  There is something more important to life than bread.      
Application:   If the physical need for food is so important that I stop three times each day to take in some physical food; then I should be willing to stop and take in some spiritual food—the Word of God.  If I take a bite of food and hold it in my mouth to enjoy the flavors, then I should be willing to pause at a verse in my reading, hold it in my thoughts and investigate its meaning.  If during the day I think back on what I had at my last meal and how good it tasted; then during the day I should pause to re-think what I read in God’s Word.  It’s a daily thing—taking in God’s Word—it is like eating. 
Prayer:   Lord, help me to digest your Word and to get all the spiritual nutrients you have put there for me.  I want your Word to stimulate growth in my life.  Amen
