In the Red
When we find ourselves in trouble with our finances when we’ve been spending more money than we’ve been taking in. The same goes for our spiritual life. When we are not continually getting filled by God in reading His truth in Scripture, our spirits get in a place of deficit and we are vulnerable to attack. God had given us His Word so that we may take in His truth, apply it to our own lives and then share it with others. It is His truth that we can stand firmly in, but it does not help us unless we read it and understand it. When we find ourselves spiritually in the red, we must go back to His Word and read.
