Preach Me Not A Meal Of Sweetened Sawdust

"Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.Job 23:12.

Common Sense Commentary: Offer me not a platter of imagination, a plate of fantasy, a cup of supposition or a glass of theory. Serve me instead a loaf of truth, the Bread of Life, God's word ... wherein is food for my mind, music to my ears, a light unto my path and nourishment for my soul. Preach me not a meal of
plastic words, dry leaves and sweetened sawdust. Teach me truth, and I will live and grow and sow the seed of that same living bread ... other hungry souls to feed. Rayburn Blair at 85.
