Feasting is something mentioned a lot in the scriptures. In the Old Testament of the Bible, feasts were celebrations of miracles performed on behalf of the people or solemn occasions when the people were to focus on Spiritual things. Feasting on the words of Christ is an admonition found in both the New Testament and the Book of Mormon.
The counsel to feast on the words of Christ is still in force today. In fact, I am of the opinion that the feast is on the table and is more abundant now than it ever has been in the past.

The question is not whether or not there is enough to study so that we can put the gospel to the test. We can study, we can ponder, we can pray, and we can listen for the Holy Spirit to answer.
The question is whether we are going to come and dine and receive all of the nourishment we can, or if we are going to starve ourselves and our families because we are not willing to make small changes, step-by-step, that will allow us to receive the spiritual nourishment we need.
