Gluttony is Still a Sin

Did you know? The 7 deadly sins are still sins. Yes, that includes gluttony.

#FirstWorldProblems include gluttony, because not only do we have an abundance of food, but we are sorely tempted to be uncharitable in our consumption of it.

We must eat, but not too much. We must eat, but not "too dainty." (Nothing against Ruth's Chris; it just doesn't pass my hungry baby test.)

We can eat at restaurants, or at home with someone else serving us, but not be uncharitable about it. "I wanted my egg over easy! This one is over medium! Can't I just get an egg the way I want it???"

Eating uncharitably is gluttony. 

Truth.

When you know better, you do better.
