Day 212

“For instance, one person believes it’s all right to eat anything. But another believer with a sensitive conscience will eat only vegetables. Those who feel free to eat anything must not look down on those who don’t. And those who don’t eat certain foods must not condemn those who do, for God has accepted them.

Those who eat any kind of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who refuse to eat certain foods also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God.” (‭Romans‬ ‭14‬:‭2-3, 6‬ NLT)

**********

So it’s not about eating certain foods. That’s what Paul is saying here, he is emphasising something that Jesus said.

It’s about how you feel while you are eating. If you believe certain foods are unGodly, then you should not eat them.

Likewise, it’s not for us to criticise someone who eats or does not eat something.

So next time you see someone refusing meat, that’s their choice not yours!

It is how someone *feels* about the food they eat which makes them “Godly” (for Godly read “a gooderson”) or not.
