In chapter 18, we are offered a challenge to begin to prayerfully exercise discernment. This can actually be a lot of fun! While we are free to enjoy any food we want when we are hungry, sometimes our bodies respond best to some foods than they do to others. This little video demonstrates (well, sort of) what I have found about my body over the years:
Obviously, godly boundaries are much more involved than merely what foods fit into “Pleaser,” “Teaser,” “Whole Body Pleaser,” and “Total Reject” categories. But this is a great application of this principle.
In reading this chapter again, I became aware of how I have been settling for a lot of Teasers lately!
How about you? 🙂
Heading off to add some things to my gratitude journal now. 🙂
