He told the people, “Be careful to guard yourselves from every kind of greed. Life is not about having a lot of material possessions.” Luke 12:15
Pride, fear, and rejection are only a few teachers that will train you to be greedy with your food. It was such a moment of freedom when I had to admit to God that I was a greedy person. For years I had no control over anything in my life, except what I could fit on my plate, and the toys I claimed as mine.
The many years as an adult I've come to understand that it wasn’t the food, it was my orphan heart in need of love that pushed me into the false love of food.
Food or any false comfort will never fill you with love.
Need can be filled, but greed is a deep, empty pit that only the Fathers love is deep enough to teach the bottom.
Maybe your eating is not about need, maybe it’s about greed.
Let your need lead you to the arms of the Father, not to food.
You are always giving yourself something"
