In doing the Fuel Challenge, I blew the cheat meal off the map Thursday — pretty sure I ingested more calories in a one hour span than I had in the previous 2 days (if you’re looking for the gritty details, check myfitnesspal). But, it was a good reminder of just how easy it is to take in WAY more than is needed when we’re not monitoring. To go all SoCratesy for a second, the same is true of life.
When we don’t pay attention to what we’re ingesting visually and audibly — from movies, TV, and the web — it is easy to let the guard down just a little and let things in that we perhaps aught not. And while that one meal may not be entirely destructive in itself, if given leave, it could quite easily, and quickly, develop into a pattern of consistent gluttony which, if left unchecked, would eventually lead to serious health issues. The same is true of what we watch, think, and say. We may not see the destruction initially, but over time we could be killing ourselves.
Matthew 6:22-23 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”
Let your light be healthy, and let it shine.
Thanks for the warm welcome out to Fox Hole. I had a lot of fun, hope you all did as well. Remember, if it isn’t hard, it isn’t worth it. Great work, great crowd, good mumble chatter — CLARIFICATION, great mumble chatter.
