Is Food Addiction Getting in the way of The Lord’s work for you?

Part of last year’s reading but always relevant and great for us to revisit. Let’s not let unhealthy eating habits and other addictions stand in the way of the work and ministries the Lord has set before us.

“ARE WE “DIGGING our own graves with forks and knives,” as a leading doctor claims?1 A new study “reveals that obesity is linked to very high rates of chronic illnesses— higher than living in poverty, and much higher than smoking or drinking.”2 Have we adequately considered the health risks of obesity, not to mention the spiritual side of obesity?”

“I do not want to lay a guilt trip on anyone, and if you are overweight or aware that your diet is unhealthy, you probably feel bad enough already. So the last thing I want to do is make you feel even worse. Instead, I want to talk with you heart-to-heart, encouraging you to consider whether there might be a serious spiritual dimension to unhealthy eating.”

“Do you have food addictions? If so, what are they? Confess them to the Lord as sinful and destructive.”
