A Sourdough Starter ...is made by adding 1 cup of warm water..1 cup of flour..1 tablespoon of honey..1 tablespoon yeast. You mix it up..and cover it and let it rise and forment for 4 to 6 hours. then it is stirred and you take out 1 cup and add it to 2 cups water and 1 cup milk pinch of salt and 2 tablespoons oil...continue to add more flour.. you mix and knead it and shape it into dough and then let rise until doubled in size.. then bake to make it into a sour dough loaf of bread... after you add 1 cup flour, 1 cup warm water and 1 tablespoon honey ..stir.. and let rise again for next loaf of bread the next day....this is your Starter.
With the starter .. you can make a loaf of bread that is so delicious. But you must keep it alive by adding what you take out back into the jar, and feed it. Starter can be used for many many years, if kept in a warm place and fed. Many familiies pass it down to there children.
When we accept Jesus... and conitinue to live a life with Him within us.. we must feed our spirit ..with the word of God daily! Keeping ourselves fed ..so we too can grow spiritually. We teach our children about Jesus and we keep his fire alive. The word is our milk and honey our Bread of Life... and to some who grow.. our meat and potatoes. Amen
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
