READ: Proverbs 23:1-8 (KJV)

1. When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee;

2. And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.

3. Be not desirous of his dainties; for they are deceitful meat.

4. Labour not to be rich; cease from thine own wisdom.

5. Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

6. Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats;

7. For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he; Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

8. The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.

MEMORISE: Daniel 1:8

“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”

While the Bible does ask us to rejoice with those who rejoice (Romans 12:15), we should beware of excessive eating, Indeed, Proverbs 23:2 says that if you know that you have a large appetite and like to eat, when you feel tempted to succumb to gluttony, hold yourself back as though someone were pointing a knife at your neck to restrain you.

Apostle Paul’s statement about subduing the body (1 Corinthians 9:27) is not restricted to sexual immorality and alcohol consumption, but also excessive food intake.
A word is enough for the wise.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please don’t allow my appetite to destroy my destiny, in Jesus’ name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Jeremiah 27-31
