Thoughts on Gluttony

by Marijo Phelps  
3/14/2009 / Christian Living

Regarding gluttony and Weight Watchers:

First it takes tremendous will power (spell that "won't" power), confessing sin (gluttony) and help from Jesus. Then it becomes a choice (FREEDOM!) eat all you are served at the restaurant or take half home?

Then going down a size in jeans!!!

It's not like I am going around starving myself to death. I am eating 3 meals a day.

Yet I am "starving" my SELF to death. YES, more of Him and less of me.

This is a lifestyle, it is not "I lose some weight and go back to eating as "normal" (this in my 7th week of Weight Watchers)

Food tastes much better. I eat slower and enjoy what I have.

Thank You, Lord.

Proverbs 23:21
for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags. (NIV)

Proverbs 23
1 When you sit to dine with a ruler,
note well what [a] is before you, 2 and put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony. 3 Do not crave his delicacies, for that food is deceptive. 4 Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. 5 Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle. (NIV)

Prayer: Dear Jesus, it is several years past the observations I wrote above. I have gained back some of the lost weight but not all. Help me, again, to apply what I learned about moderation and make healthy choices in You. Please forgive me those times I overindulge. And help me always to remember: 1 Corinthians 10:31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. (NIV) AMEN.
