* In the beginning, God created. .. in an orderly fashion. He created the heavens and the earth. He created light. He created the atmosphere. He created the seas and the lands. He created vegetation. He created the sun, moon and stars. He created the fish and the fowl. He created the land creatures. He created man.
* Consider Genesis 1:26-31. When God created humans, He created them in His image and likeness, to have dominion over the rest of creation. He created them to be fruitful and multiply. He also created them with a need to consume "food" to provide nutrients to their bodies. So, before God created animal life or human life, He created vegetation to be for food for mankind.
* Food is a blessing of God. It is not evil. Yet ... it can be and has been used for evil. At the beginning, Satan tempted Eve with food. It was good-looking, would taste good, and was the first "SuperFood!" ... it would give you wisdom to become like God! (*The food industry bestows the superfood label on nutrient-rich foods with a supposed capacity to positively affect health. Though many foods could be described as super, it’s important to understand that there is no single food that holds the key to good health or disease prevention. ... *)
* The Word of God has much to say regarding "Food and Drink." Today, we will consider the importance of Self-Control and Contentment as it relates to our consumption of food and drink.
