We dieters find ways to shoot ourselves in the foot or as the truth be told…in our mouth.
We choose restaurants with extra special desserts and then try to say no and seldom do.
We buy foods we love just in case we have company and no company comes. …so we eat it.
We cook way too much and eat the leftovers.
Take a page from Daniel’s book.
But Daniel determined that he would not defile himself by eating the king’s food or drinking his wine, so he asked the head of the palace staff to exempt him from the royal diet. ” (Daniel 1:8, MSG)
Daniel figured out a way not to be tempted. He made plans that helped him stay on the straight and narrow.
Prayer- God, we subconsciously know that we are laying false plans of honesty when we do such things. Rebuke us severely when we do. Amen.
