There was a strange programme on this evening, and I happened to be in the room while it was on. It featured a selection of individuals who are extremely proficient at eating large quantities of food at record speeds.
When was of these individuals was examined medically, it was discovered he had a huge stomach. It folds itself up when not in use. It has probably grown as the guy has trained himself to eat food fast enough to break records.
His body, you could now say, has become one that eats food fast.
I admire his dedication, but am not impressed with his achievement.
Don’t work for things that don’t last, taught Jesus. It reminds me of that. Food is for the body, and the body not there to glorify food or eating.
And don’t live by bread alone!
