Post Dieter's Devotional




Luke 6:25
'Woe unto you that are full!
for ye shall hunger.
Woe unto you that laugh now!
for ye shall mourn and weep.'

As Christians, we need to keep in mind that we live in a world of
terrible inequality. While we have the opportunities to overeat
and overindulge, many people have no such chances.
So many people starve.
It is surely humbling to realize that much of our obesity
comes from living in a culture where we can have
pretty much all we want. The Lord Jesus
Christ chastised the people of His day who were filled
with the good things of life,
because they ignored their brothers and sisters
who had nothing.
As we diet and feel the hunger
in our stomachs, we are more aware of
the feelings of our neighbors around the world
who do not have enough
to eat.

Today's thought:
Make me less, Lord:
less body,
less selfishness,
less ego!
