Your Daily Dose of Boldness – 7 Deadly Sins: Gluttony

7 Deadly Sins: Gluttony

People have a misconception that gluttony is simply a problem of over-eating. It has more to do with the consumption of anything in excess. People who measure every single calorie, count every bite, and jump on the scale after every meal are just as guilty of gluttony as the person eating a whole bucket of fried chicken in bed during a T.V. marathon.

Gluttony is spending an excessive amount of time on something other than God. Finding pleasure in food (or the lack thereof), shopping, television, work, or exercise instead of God can all be gluttonous acts.

Philippians 3:19 says, “Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.” We all have the predisposition to search for salvation in the things around us, whether it be food or work. Instead of looking toward God, we look at the more tangible, immediate saviors that give us instantaneous, albeit temporary, joy.

The problem with this is that these earthly pleasures never sate the appetite that is meant for God. And that’s why we think we need more and more of it. We over-eat or over-work in hopes that we’ll finally be content when all we really need is God.

Do as 1 Corinthians 10:31 says, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” Enjoy meals with your family and friends, but keep God involved in the festivities and through all of it, glorify His gifts.
