“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. “Jesus

Gluttony is a sin. That usually refers to eating too much or more than you need. The result is fat which produces a lower quality of life and shortens your life time. It makes me wonder if gluttony of other things in my life are equally as detrimental.

This brings me to serving the God of “just enough, in the nick of time”. Don’t get me wrong. I love and appreciate God’s provision. He supplies according to my needs in awesome and miraculous ways, but sometimes I wonder why He doesn’t supply more than enough and earlier than I need it. Could it be because gluttony of His provisions lead to sin, also?

I don’t know about this so don’t write it down as truth spoken from the janitor. Just think about it. Maybe you will have an answer to a life long question of mine?

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. Sometimes too much blessing can make one arrogant. Then one thinks one is in control oneself, and everything is centred around oneself. So maybe God’s timing is designed to keep us living in humble dependance on Him, so that everything is centred around Him. In case that sounds rather mean of God, maybe it’s like giving a teenager a 600cc motorbike capable of doing 200km/h, but governing it to 80km/h so that the chap doesn’t run away with it and kill himself.

    Sometimes one’s faith is shown in the simple things: like acknowledging that God is right????

  2. Hi valleysong. I appreciate your thoughts and I agree with your analogy. It’s my passion to become the man that God would choose to trust a 600cc motorbike without a governor. 🙂
