What type of stories about food in our lives might interest God?
In the previous post I stated someone once said the reason God created us was because He loves to hear a good story. Will our story be pleasing to Him? If not, I suggested maybe we should begin to edit our lives to make our story be more pleasing to God.
What type of stories about our choices of foods and appetites in our lives would be of interest and please, rather than bore God?
Bible Genesis 1:27 states God created human beings in his own image. Based on that statement, what would you surmise about God’s preferences for an healthy good appearance of body and spirit in relation to His body appearance and weight?.
All good electrical and mechanical devices designed by humans have devices to protect and gauge energy inputs so as not to overload and harm the device. Perhaps the God designed our minds to control our free will wise or foolish choices along with a gauge, our appearance, to help warn us we may be harming our bodies?
Some of us may vastly exceed our energy design limits with a condition known as gluttony. Health problems usually result which can harm our operating capacities and decrease our lifespan. In this instance, food probably will be of no interest to God who I surmise desired for us to run at peak performance for His purposes.
His proverbs state that a testament of a person being wise is to achieve a long life and how to to gauge ourselves. Some examples:
Do you like honey? Don’t eat too much, or it will make you sick! (Proverb 25:16 NLT)
She (Wisdom)is more precious than jewels; And nothing you desire compares with her. Long life is in her right hand; In her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways And all her paths are peace.(Proverbs 3: 15, 16,, 17)
Just as water mirrors your face, so your face mirrors your heart. (Proverb 27:19)
What is it about our uses and intakes of food would interest or please Him to know what we ingested and used the energy of our body and spirit to carry out his will and purpose for creating us? Perhaps He may not be bored with hearing how we gave food to feed the hungry instead of gorging ourselves or wasting food?.
In My Opinion.
Each different religious faith has a symbolic food they believe will aid them to do better in accordance to God’s will and purpose for creating them. As a Christian, I surmise the only reason God will be pleased if I was a glutton would be if I went daily to church to eat the symbolic food of Christians which is bread and wine to energize my spirit and body.
I listed in the Source below an article of other symbolic foods of other faiths.
A Bad News Report?
The Chicago Tribune on April 8, 2016 has an article “Will US obesity gains shorten our life spans.” The article lists all the harmful health effects of obesity.
Perhaps we need to look in the mirror to gauge our appearance? What do you see? Perhaps maybe we should have donated the excess food we consumed to the more needy? Or we should we try to use up more energy to do what you surmise Gods will and purpose is for creating us?
Will God be pleased or interested when he listens to your story and gauges your appearance? Keep in mind, He will know if your really have a thyroid, or an excessive intake problem.
