My good friend sent me this blog article. It is about how things, even healthy eating, can become idols in our lives. I thought it was very nice. Here's my favorite quote:
"Eating healthy will not guarantee my family a more peaceful longer life.
It will not add a single day to my life than God has already
determined. Only God knows the number of my days. (Psalms 139:16)
He calls me to be faithful to care for my physical body, and this
includes being wise in what I put into my body, knowing that it will
affect my ability to serve the Lord; but when I raise that to a
god-level, it is no longer a good thing. My security must only be found
in Christ. He controls my family’s health and wellness."
Here's the link to the whole thing, if you like.
