Soak Up

Think of the process of preparing tea. You fill a cup with boiling hot water, then put the tea bag of your choosing in there. Minutes later, the tea is ready. This has been used as an example of meditation for years. Here’s why it’s so good: the tea is only drinkable because the hot water takes time to sit there and the tea infuses it. The tea would not be drinkable without time to sit. We’re the cup of hot water. The Word of God is the tea bag. The best way to meditate is to allow our mind to sit and soak up what we just read or heard from the Word of God.
