Many people in the world are on special diets. Maybe they want to lose weight, or maybe they want to have healthier bodies. A magazine recently reported that Americans spend more than $60 billion every year on diets.
Wow! I wish that all people were as concerned about living for God as they are about what they eat. That’s what Jesus talks about in our Bible verses for today. In verse 15 Jesus says, “There is nothing people can put in their mouth that will make them wrong. People are made wrong by what comes from inside them.”
Jesus goes on to list bad things that a person can have in his heart and mind. Then in verse 23 He says, “These evil things come from inside a person. And these are the things that make people unacceptable to God.”
Be careful today to watch your heart and your mind as much as you watch your weight. Obey God and do things that please Him and bring honor to His name.
