Extra pounds need not be part of your Christmas gift to yourself! Or am I already too late with this info? Buffets are the worst aren’t they? This is what St. Paul did when faced with a buffet.
But [like a boxer] I buffet my body [handle it roughly, discipline it by hardships] and subdue it, for fear that after proclaiming to others the Gospel and things pertaining to it, I myself should become unfit [not stand the test, be unapproved and rejected as a counterfeit]. (1 Corinthians 9:27, AMP)
So what is a dieter to do? Avoid food! (Oh that works…ha-ha)
Case the joint –I mean the buffet first. Check it out and then get your plate and fill it with common sense choices.
Beware any food that shines. It met a keg of oil at some point.
Bravely ask the cook what is in it…(Sometimes you would rather not know about the octopus!)
Prayer- Lord, we want to enjoy Christmas but please help us choose our favorites in smaller portions. Thanks God. Amen.
