I’ve mentioned the book I’ve been reading, “Love to Eat, Hate to Eat” by Elyse Fitzpatrick. I will be sharing multiple things I’ve learned from the book in the weeks to come. This book comes with a study guide in the back of the book, scriptures to memorize and other helpful, printable resources.
“Biblically the word glutton means a person who is debased and excessive in his eating habits. Gluttony is more than overeating. In it’s association with drunkenness , it describes a life given to excess….The sin lies in the fact that one’s life is not self-disciplined—he lives a life of excess. He is living solely for himself. Allowing ourselves to have whatever we want, in whatever quantity we want, whenever we want it will lead to excess and the slavery of gluttony.”
This is one of the quotes that touched the deepest parts of my heart. I do not want to be a slave to food. I only want to be a slave to Christ!
How does this quote effect your heart?
