2. God Cares About What We Eat
In a culture of obesity, we’re told not to make feasting or food a centerpiece of our daily life. And yet God did just that throughout the Old Testament.
He also laid out specific dietary restrictions. If you argue that as Christians we are free from dietary laws, I would agree. But also, we came to understand the wisdom of 1 Corinthians 10:23 (ASV).
23 All things are lawful; but not all things are expedient. All things are lawful; but not all things edify.
It may be lawful for me to ignore the fact that God cares about what we eat, but it’s clearly not in my best interest to do so. He wants us healthy. He wants us strong. He wants us to live a long, prosperous life.
By embracing this truth, we stopped listening to food manufacturers and began to learn about the fast array of healing qualities of food made by God alone.
