What comes to mind when you hear the word “appetite”? Most of us probably think of food. Right? Appetite is, of course, primarily about our desire for food. But we use the word to express our desire for other things too. Maybe we have an appetite for popularity or status. Some people might have an appetite for power or control. We hear of people with an appetite for destruction. All of us probably have an appetite for relationships. Maybe our appetite is for entertainment or sports or (dare I say) college football.
Given the widespread application of appetite, we shouldn’t be surprised that Jesus has some things to say about the subject also. And when Jesus talks about appetite, he zeros in on one thing. Listen to the podcast to find out what that one thing is and how to cultivate an appetite for it.
