An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

(Pro 24:13 KJV) My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:

The glutton in me loves this verse.  The diabetic hates it.  Like so many things that you read in the Bible, if you take them in isolation and read nothing else they give the wrong impression.  We are to enjoy the good things.  We are not to let the good things consume us.  It is called moderation and timing.  I often complain about how social occasions make it hard for me to control my weight.  It is a smoke screen.  What puts on the pounds are the extras that I add to the meal and the calories I consume when I get off by myself.  No one grabs my hand and forces the food into my mouth.

So?  Moderation is a spiritual quality.  Moderation is hard.  It is a day by day and often minute by minute struggle for me.  I hope you are different.
