It’s a pleasure to be on Crosswalk.com today, sharing about the undercover lies we often believe about food, and the powerful truth that will set us free.
Here’s a snippet:
Before you even reach for the donut, you’ve already subconsciously fought (and perhaps lost) the battle between truth and lies that’s going on in your mind. Scripture tells us that we’re engaged in spiritual warfare (see Ephesians 6:10-18) and that the battle is fought and won in our minds (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).
Let’s blow the cover on these common food lies, submit them to the authority of God’s Word, and dare to live the full life Jesus came to give us.
Which one of these will you tackle first?
#1: I Can’t Let This Food Go to Waste
Lie: I can’t let this food go to waste. I feel kind of full, but there are only a few bites left and I don’t want to throw them away. That’s not good stewardship! I’ll just clean up the plate.
Truth: I don’t treat my body as a trashcan. It’s the temple of the Holy Spirit, so I will care for my body as the prized dwelling place of God. (see 1 Corinthians 6:19)
Dare: Instead of eating others’ leftovers while you clear the table or do dishes, think about some creative solutions to practice good stewardship: try serving smaller portions or saving leftovers to eat for lunch the next day.
