“The sin of gluttony is the pursuit and overindulgence of the body’s appetites, especially for food and drink. Care for the temple of the Holy Spirit, is an important spiritual discipline. Gluttony goes beyond healthy self-care. Gluttony believes that if a little is good, a lot will always be better. What makes gluttony a sin is not only the fact that it is bad for the body, but that it places the bodily appetites in a superior position to other spiritual things. ~ Michael Mangis
Spirit of God, help me to fully understand what it means that my body is your temple. Amen.
