Topic: Dangers Of Over Eating [Teens Open Heavens 24, June 2018]
Memorise: Whether therefore yeah eat, or drink, or what so ever yeah do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
Read: Proverbs 23:19-21 (KJV)
19 Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.
20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:
21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.
Bible In One Year: Job 1-3, Acts 7:1-19
As teenagers, we tend to love food. And this is not bad because at your age, you exert a lot of energy. However, you must do all things in moderation. An experiment was once conducted by some scientists. They had two group of rats, and they fed the rats in group A more than enough food such that they were looking fat and robust. But they only fed the rats in group B with the quantity of food they needed per day. The rats in group B were slim and not as robust as those of group A. Then the scientists injected all the rats with equal doses of disease. Before long, all the rats in group A were dead, while the rats in group B survived. When you overload yourself with food, all your organs are kept busy, such that if there is any challenge to them at any time, they will be too weak to respond, hence leaving them in danger.
Overeating is not always an evidence of good living. It could also be an evidence of dangerous living.
Key Point: A Christian who overeats will always be to heavy physically and spiritually, and will not be spiritually alert. A spiritually dull Christian is a dead Christian.

1. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
2. Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3. Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
4.But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
5. Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
