It seems that we, as Christians, tend to zero in on the sins of our culture pretty quickly. We like to criticize homosexuality, alcoholism, gambling, etc. Well, how come we ignore one of our culture’s “biggest” issues: gluttony? The Bible tells us it is wrong. Check out Deuteronomy 21:20; Proverbs 23:20-21; and Titus 1:12 if you would like some examples of how the Bible speaks of this sin.
The worst thing about our gluttony is that we do not think of it as wrong. Some of us do not think about it at all. We over-consume on almost a daily basis. Sadly, we are even passing along our unhealthy and sinful ways to our children. Apparently, 1 in 5 four year old children are obese. 1 in 5!
What are your thoughts? Why do we seem to ignore this problem? I suspect it is because so many of us are guilty of it.
