Don't Just Put Anything Into Your Big Mouth!
Gluttony can be defined as habitual greed or excess in eating. Eating excessively can cause great harm to the body and from the biblical realm, it is a sin against the Holy Spirit.
Gluttony may not be a habitual trait for some people but it is for others. Learn to say thank you when you've eaten to your fill and more food is passed to your table. It would do you more good than harm.
Some of the harmful things it does, consists of; indigestion, sleepless night(s), aching stomach, puking, pooing, imbalance, restlessness, obesity and other negative vices.
Most times drunks are quick to be condemned while those who are gluttons go unnoticed. "Physical appetites are an analogy of our ability to control ourselves. If we are unable to control our eating habits, we are probably also unable to control other habits, such as those of the mind (lust, covetousness, anger) and unable to keep our mouths from gossip or strife. We are not to let our appetites control us, but we are to have control over our appetites. (See Deuteronomy 21:20, Proverbs 23:2)", this will help a great deal in teaching us the 'dos' and 'donts' of responsible eating.
Stay away from excess eating today, I don't care how skinny you may look, you are not exempted! for Health Is Wealth.
