The Bread of Life is Non-Fattening - Devotional For Dieters 1/8

This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever (John 6:58). God has given us many freedoms, but one we should not abuse is the freedom to consume as much food as we want.

John 6:58
This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

Face it: Dieting wouldn't be so hard if food didn't taste so good! Like anything good, we want to get as much of it as we can. It's easy to place a high value on the food we eat. But, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. God has given us many freedoms, but one we should not abuse is the freedom to consume as much food as we want. No one can limit what we eat except ourselves. We need to realize that our daily bread supplies what we need, not what we want. Excessive eating is selfishness, and selfishness is sin. When we feel the urge to overeat, let us turn to God and nourish ourselves on the true bread that comes from Him - His Word.

Today's thought: God's bread of life is non-fattening!
