Day 7 – I Like It. I Love It. I Want Some More Of It

Today’s lesson talked about how we believe that more is better.  Barb says, “The only reason we think more is better is because we’ve chosen to completely ignore the consequences of more. Here’s the truth: a little is fun. A lot is not. (It even rhymes.) In real life, “a lot” brings so many consequences with it, that it’s anything but fun.”

Don’t associate with those who drink too much wine or with those who gorge themselves on meat.  For the drunkard and the glutton will become poor, and grogginess will clothe them in rags. Proverbs 23:20-21 HCSB

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you. Matthew 6:33 HCSB

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.  I Corinthians 10:31 NIV

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians 3:2 NIV

Do not love the world or the things that belong to[a] the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.   For everything that belongs to the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride in one’s lifestyle—is not from the Father, but is from the world.   And the world with its lust is passing away, but the one who does God’s will remains forever.  I John 2:15-17 HCSB

These verses all have something to say about focusing our lives on always indulging ourselves. I want to glorify God in all that I do, including my eating.

Going through Taste for Truth by Barb Raveling

So my boundaries are changing already. I believe God wants me to be more specific than “Limit carbohydrates”. That became apparent today. So that line of my boundaries will now read: “No white or processed wheat flour (can use almond and coconut flour for cooking/baking).”
