gluttony

Saturday August 8th, John 6: 33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." 34 "Sir," they said, "from now on give us this bread." 35 Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.  Gluttony is raiding the refrigerator because of a case of spiritual hunger.  That which makes life comes from God, and no blue plate special can ever truly fill that hunger.  Until you fill that hunger, all the hording, holding and hounding only brings more hunger.  God has given you more than enough good things, what they learned on that mountain, and what we still have trouble hearing today, is that in sharing there is life.  Life that comes from God, life that flows through us, life given to others, and once we tap into that life, the hunger goes away, and so does the gluttony.
