While the recipe varies, therapeutic milk is generally a combination of dried skim milk power, sugar, cereal flour, vegetable oil, mineral mix and water. Because it is high in energy, fat, protein and nutrients, it is fed to starving children and adults around the world, in order to treat severe malnutrition and literally save their lives.
Surely they must feel like the folks in Isaiah 55:1.
“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. (Isaiah 55:1, NIV)
Imagine being so close to death and then finding yourself restored with therapeutic milk. The same is true of our spiritual selves…we are near death, and then someone fills us with the Word of God.
Prayer – God, may we never take life for granted, no matter whether it be physical, emotional or spiritual. Feed us with the food of your choice Lord, before we starve to death. Amen
