Belly versus Brain

After yesterday’s ice cream debacle, I received Bruce Atchison’s five star review for my new book, “God, Gluttony & You.”

His comments include phrases like this:

“Brenda J. Wood methodically lays out her steps for properly respecting what God has given us to look after: our bodies, the temple of the Holy Spirit.”

“Wood makes her case for the Christian’s mastery over appetite.”

And this one that really stung:

“Christians can be guilty of letting their bellies rule their brains, not the other way around.”

Do I know what to do about over eating? (Yes.)  Did I do it? (No)

What does the Bible say about that?

Any person who knows what is right to do but does not do it, to him it is sin. (James 4:17, AMP)

But thankfully it also says: “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7, AMP)

Aren’t we glad of forgiveness?

Prayer- Lord, we can’t say forgive us because we don’t know what we do. We do…and you still forgive us. Thank you! Amen
