Use food as fuel.

Happy is the land whose king is a noble leader and whose leaders feast at the proper time to gain strength for their work, not to get drunk. Ecclesiastes 10:17

There’s nothing wrong with having a drink. Jesus did. But there’s a smart way to think about food and drink.

Food was designed as fuel. As a bonus, it tastes great. But more than that, it’s essential for replenishing strength. And strength and energy are needed to make the most of our one and only life.

Today, evaluate your food consumption by this:

1. Will this fuel me?

2. How much of it do I require?

It might seem a little mechanical, but it’s a good starting point for a shift in thinking.
