Food and Health

I am all for eating healthy (at least most of the time) but I also want to enjoy food too.

“If we don’t make time for our necessary health, we will be forced to make time for unnecessary ailments.”

To one extreme we can become gluttons. That’s not good as we read here:

Be not among drunkards or among gluttonous eaters of meat,

Proverbs 23:20

But Israel soon became fat and unruly; the people grew heavy, plump, and stuffed!

Then they abandoned the God who had made them; they made light of the Rock of their salvation.

Deuteronomy 32:15

We are to be good stewards of everything and most certainly our bodies.

Yet to the other extreme, it can be a form of idolatry as some people worship their bodies which are all going to grow old and die regardless.

for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.

1st Timothy 4:8

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

Matthew 6:25

We all should find a good balance between the physical and spiritual loves. A healthy lifestyle is certainly important but it should distant second to a healthy sanctification as one lasts for about a 100 years and the other for infinity.

Both take discipline.

Yet all work and no play, makes for a very dull life. Harmony, oh Lord may You help each of us have harmonic balance.

Ten Life Maxims

Someone wrote these beautiful words.

My hope is that you read, understand and apply the deep meaning to your life.

  1. Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a “steering wheel” that directs the right path throughout.
  2. A Car’s WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rear view Mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, Look Ahead and Move on.
  3. Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.
  4. All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don’t worry, they can’t last long either.
  5. Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don’t forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!
  6. Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, “Relax, sweetheart, it’s just a bend, not the end!
  7. When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn’t solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.
  8. A blind person asked St. Anthony: “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied: “Yes, losing your vision!”
  9. When you pray for others, GOD listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.
  10. WORRYING does not take away tomorrow’s TROUBLES, it takes away today’s PEACE.

If you really enjoy this, please pass to others. It may brighten someone’s
day…
