Proverbs 23 on Food


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 Don’t gobble your food, don’t talk with your mouth full.

3 And don’t stuff yourself; bridle your appetite.

6 Don’t accept a meal from a tightwad; don’t expect anything special.

20 Don’t drink too much wine and get drunk; don’t eat too much food and get fat.

Just some “food” for thought. I love how the Bible can be so practical.

    “or else pizza is gonna send out for you.”
    ha ha! great movie!

    yeah its amazing how we have so many made up church rules now but we have forgotten the simple things that the Bible talks about, take care of your body, take care of your environment. i am slowly unlearning the “rules” and re-discovering what the Bible really says.
