(NKJV) "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows,that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption,but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life."
Things can be so fun and exciting that it's easy to forget that there is always
a price to pay.
Take a day in the life of Joey 'Jaws' Chestnut. Don't know who he is? He's a competitive
eater who recently won the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating contest at New York's
Coney Island. He won hands down by eating 62 hot dogs in buns in just 10 minutes.
He's the champion this year! What a feat! He made national headlines with just 10
minutes of competition.
How much did it cost him to win? Well, the price was free. He didn't have to purchase
them. But the nutritional cost was staggering. Ready? That 10 minute binge on 62
hot dogs adds up to:
1,246 grams of fat
2,170 grams of cholesterol
42,408 grams of sodium
Not too good for his body, that's for sure! What's true in the physical realm is
true in the Spiritual realm. There is always a price to pay for our actions. Sometimes
it's reaped as a benefit, but other times it's received as a consequence.
Pray for wisdom this week with the decisions that are before you and make those
decisions unto Jesus, and Him alone.
