Yesterday we celebrated Christ raised from the dead; and on a lesser scale, I rejoiced because I made it through Lent without indulging in my life-long habit of toast and peanut butter for breakfast.
According to Twitter, 11 of the top 20 Lent give-ups are food/drink related, with chocolate # 1 and pizza # 20. When something is overtaking you by the gallon, it’s time to cap it, so to speak. How do your food choices take your thoughts, actions, and spiritual self away from Jesus?
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, even though the ‘giving up’ season of Lent is over, may we give up anything that gets in the way of our relationship with you. For Christ, who gave up everything for us. Amen.
