I’m Not Going To Eat Anymore

ADAPTED

 

      I have decided that I’m not going to eat anymore because…

      I was forced to eat as a child.

 

      People who eat all the time are hypocrites;  they aren’t                 really hungry.

 

There are so many different kinds of food.  I can’t

decide what to eat.

 

I used to eat, but I got bored.

 

None of my friends will eat with me.

 

I only eat on special occasions, like Christmas and Easter.

 

I’ll start eating when I get older.

 

I’m too busy working.

 

I don’t believe that eating does any good.  It’s just a crutch.

 

Restaurants and grocery stores are only after your money.

 

Laughable, isn’t it?  But the same kind of excuses are used by people who choose not to attend Bible study and worship.  If people used the same excuses they use for not attending the services of the church on their job they would be fired.  If students used these excuses for not attending school they would be in violation of the law and suffer the penalties thereof.

 

Our relationship to God is vital for a healthy soul (Hebrews 10:25).  Our relationship with God is far more important than regular, balanced meals.  Without spiritual food, we will die (I Peter 2:2).
