Keeping Up with the Joneses

Twenty years ago or so, “keeping up with the Joneses” meant a bigger house, a newer car and the best of everything, including an overdrawn bank account.

Times have changed. Now the Joneses spend most of their time getting healthy. So are you keeping up? What foods grace our lips, then our hips? Do we live on vegetable-free pizza?

Stop meddling you say… If I can thank God for the food and enjoy it, why should I be condemned for eating it? (1Corinthians 10:30, NLT)

That’s a good question and here is the answer So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. (1Corinthians 10:31, NLT)

Can we honestly say that every morsel we eat glorifies God?

Does it even come close to doing this? I don’t just do what is best for me; I do what is best for others so that many may be saved. (1Corinthians 10:33b, NLT)

Prayer – Lord, help us behave in a way that honours you, and leads others to know you as their Saviour. Amen
