I once read that the average person has at least 20 food encounters every day. How can we manage these encounters? First Corinthians 10:31 says, “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Imagine it! You can actually eat in a way that brings honor and glory to God! So give God glory and honor Him when you eat, by what you eat, and by how much you eat …
- Refuse to be mastered by food or drink
- Refuse to overeat
- Eat with self-control
- Consume just enough
- Eat only what you need
As you make your way through your glorious new day, the day that the Lord has made and the day that He has given to you, pray. Use the content of Romans 12:1 as your personal heart cry to God:
Lord, today I present my body to you as a living sacrifice, as a spiritual service of my worship. May I live this day in a way that is acceptable to You. Lead me not into temptation. Amen.
