This verse should make us pause.
We eat multiple times a day.
Every earthly food and drink that passes our lips has eternal purpose.
What we choose to eat matters.
If everything we eat and drink is to glorify God,
if everything we do is an act of worship,
then we must ask before we eat and drink …
Does this food/drink bring glory to You, God?
There was a time when I never made the connection.
I never even considered God in what I ate.
I just ate.
Whatever I wanted.
Which was either diet food.
Or fast food.
Or I would try dieting again.
But I ended up sick as a result of the life I was living and the food I ate.
I cried out to God.
He taught me a new way to eat and live.
FOR HIS GLORY!
“FOR HIS GLORY!”
And you know what? As I obediently followed His way of eating and living, the burdens of disease and weight became non-issues.
I want the same for you.
Commit this verse to memory.
Pause before you eat or drink.
Ask God: Does this food/drink bring glory to You, Lord?
Really listen to what He has to say.
