Dieting in faith.
Getting ready to go to my third Weight Watchers meeting this weekend. Plan is working well and I sometimes to remember to glorify the Lord in my hunger, to offer it as reparation, and to be responsible for the body He gave me. Other times I just pout.
If I feel myself beginning to start a sentence "Oh, well, what's it gonna hurt?" there's a sin coming along next. Even if I'm talking about one little cookie, or one social lie, or five miles over the speed limit.
Is there such a thing as "slightly sinful?" You can measure the bigness of sin (murder vs being impatient) but you can't use smallness to deny the reality of offending God. AND the apparent smallness of your sin is in no way an indicator of the massiveness of the sin you'd commit, given the chance.
