Lots of us are struggling with this issue. There’s the “Fat Ragamuffintop Challenge“, there’s the weightwatchers, the nutrasystems, the “No More Fat Arse People in Ministry Weight Loss Challenge“, etc. There’s me – I’m trying to get back into shape, although my life has been crazy for the past month or so. I just thought I’d share some of what I read in Proverbs today. I love the simple truth’s of the Bible:
1 When you go out to eat with an influential person, mind your manners.
2 DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t gobble your food, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t talk with your mouth full.
3 And donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t stuff yourself; bridle your appetite.
6 DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t accept a meal from a tightwad; donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t expect anything special.
20 DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t drink too much wine and get drunk; donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t eat too much food and get fat.
Just some “food” for thought. I love how the Bible can be so practical.
