One of the most essential ingredients of acquiring an appetite for God is to surround your life with people of spiritual appetite. If you walk in the counsel of the ungodly, you will become ungodly. If you stand in the way of sinners, you will be a sinner. If you sit in the seat of the scornful, you will become a critic of God. But if you run with those of a spiritual appetite, you will have a spiritual appetite. Appetites are contagious. If you want be red hot for the Lord, check the temperature of those you associate with. If they are all sub-tropic, then your spirit is going to freeze.
