Now for the second thing. It seemed like ages we went out, because of my health. Infection is still staying on like an uninvited guest and the fever is also there, but considerably less. Ritchie offered to take me out and I immediately hopped and got ready. We went to a very nice restaurant and had a super big buffet. I hogged, hogged and hogged After days of soup and all that patient type food, I did not leave this chance. Came back home and now it is past 7 in the evening and I still feel bloated and all I want to do is cut my stomach and take all that food out...seriously
That is also today's sin... Gluttony!!
Gluttony, my dear friends is when you stuff yourself with something you love. Over indulgence or over consumption is what constitutes Gluttony. Have you seen those people stuffing their plates with food at buffet restaurants or even at weddings and parties. If that plate had a mouth it would yell, shout and scream. One may think how will they eat all this, but they sure can!! Not only at buffets, but even when we go out on a lunch or dinner, by the end of our main course we are full but still we crave for that dessert. Other than deficiency in vitamin B or vitamin C, what causes this sort of behaviour is Gluttony! Think about it, we stuff ourselves with all that food and then complain about not being able to breathe (yeah that is what I was doing today). You know why that is a sin, someone else could have had that food, someone who was hungry and needed it. We have had our fill, but no we have to stuff more
Food is not the only area where we like to stuff ourselves, I believe. Take a good look around us, and we will find lots of people who just like to acquire more and more. People who make a decent living, have enough savings and are well settled in life, but give them a chance to make more money and they will jump into it. Never mind if that means they would be spending less time with their families, or then they will not have breathing space in their lives, but still they will go and grab that opportunity. It's like 'we have enough, but we want more' seems to be the motto of such people. Hoarding lipsticks, nail polishes and other make up items is a good example of gluttony . Not if we are using them though, but you know people who just buy for the sake of it and leave it lying in their dressing boxes...that is sinful.
What do we do about it then? Self Control is the name of the game. Yes if you can go to an Italian restaurant and say no to a chocolate classic panna cotta because you are full then yayyyyy you have done it (and remember I said 'you' not 'me'). We all need to have a point where in life we can happily put a stopper and say 'ok that is enough.. I have it all'. Because if we don't then how are we ever going to enjoy all the things that we have already in our lives. In the pursuit of grabbing and hoarding more we would loose out on time to enjoy what we already have.
Yes yes the one below is sexy too like the one yesterday, but remember people Sin always tries to tempt you
