King Solomon, Why God Created Us, Post Four
What type of stories about our appetites for food and life might interest God?
In the previous post I stated someone once said the reason God created us was because He loves to hear a good story. Will our story be pleasing to Him? If not, I suggested maybe we should begin to edit our lives to make our story be more pleasing to God.
But then, what type of stories about our choices of foods in our lives would please, or even interest, rather than bore God.
Bible Genesis 1:27 states God created human beings in his own image. Based on that statement, what would you surmise about God’s preferences for an healthy good appearance of body and spirit in relation to His body appearance and weight?.
All good electrical and mechanical devices designed by humans have devices to protect and gauge energy inputs so as not to overload and harm the device. Perhaps the God designed our minds to control our free wise or foolish choices along with a gauge, our appearance, to help warn us we may be harming our bodies?
When we exceed our energy design limits with a condition known as gluttony, it is not good because we cause health problems which can harm our operating capacities and decrease our lifespan. In this instance, food is bad and probably of may be of no interest to God who I surmise desires us to run at peak performance for His purposes.
His proverbs state that a testament of a person being wise is to achieve a long life and how to to gauge ourselves. Some examples: Do you like honey? Don’t eat too much, or it will make you sick! (Proverb 25:16 NLT)
She (Wisdom)is more precious than jewels; And nothing you desire compares with her. Long life is in her right hand; In her left hand are riches and honor.Her ways are pleasant ways And all her paths are peace.(Proverbs 3: 15, 16,, 17)
Just as water mirrors your face, so your face mirrors your heart. (Proverb 27:19)
So what good food would God be interested in knowing we consumed? I surmise He gave us the capacity to choose to overload our food intakes. What is it about our uses and intakes would interest or please Him to know we ingested and used the energy for our body and spirit to carry out his will and purpose for creating us? How can we gauge ourselves to know we may please God?
In My Opinion.
Each different religious faith has a symbolic food they believe will aid them to do better in accordance to God’s will an purpose for creating them. As a Christian, I surmise God will be pleased if I became a good glutton and went daily to church to eat the symbolic food of Christians which is bread and wine to energize my spirt and body.
I listed in the Source below an article of other symbolic foods of other faiths.
A Bad News Report?
The Chicago Tribune on April 8, 2016 has an article “Will US obesity gains or shorten our life spans.” The article lists all the harmful health effects of obesity.
Perhaps we need to look in the mirror to gauge our appearance? What do you see? Perhaps maybe we should have donated the excess food we consumed to the more needy? Or should we try to use up more energy to do what you surmise Gods will and purpose is for creating us?. Would God be pleased or interested when he listens to your story and gauges your appearance? Is it possible that God has a red chair that He uses that I described in the previous post used by Graham Gordon: You decide.
