1--Adam and Eve were on a Diet

Sunday, August 18, 2019

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Gen. 1:1. Since He created me, I owe Him everything that I am or ever will be. "Then God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness." Gen. 1:3. Whoa! That's awesome! What a vast potential that opens up, to be in the image and likeness of God! And of course, as any responsible manufacturer would do, He specified what products would make us run best, so He put them on a diet: "...every herb yielding seed [grains] ...the fruit of a tree yielding seed [fruit and nuts], to you it shall be for food." Gen. 1:19. And after the fall "the herb of the field [vegetables]" was added. Gen. 2:18. Only after the flood was meat added (Gen. 9:3) but as a result, over just a few generations the lifespan of men fell precipitously from the 800-900's to the 100-200's. And now 100 is considered worthy of a letter from the president!

    I'm recalling what Paul wrote in Romans 14, for whatever does not proceed from faith is sin. Because of that I seek not to put a stumbling block in front of another believer. Paul encourages us all to encourage one another in the faith.

    You are certainly one with conviction, so keep listening to God.

    Ciao for now,
    Chow for laters.

    That is a great way to look at it. I feel my body is a gift from God and I need to keep it as good as I can.
