Gluttony vs. Self-Control = Sin vs. Fruit

This is a really deep subject. One I don’t feel like I’m qualified to speak on with any certainty.

Guess what? I’ve still got something to say.

With Thanksgiving next week, we begin to see that number on the scale go up, our pants seem to shrink at the waist, and our consciousness equates food with family and fun.

Please, please be careful this holiday season. By all means enjoy yourselves, but don’t give into your appetites. Do not be a slave to your hunger. Do not idolize food.

There is so much more happiness in being healthy than in that brief taste of food.

For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. - Phil.: 18-19

Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control. – Prov. 25:28

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. – Gal. 5:22-23
