For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty:
Let’s start with gluttons, gluttons are people who love to eat, they eat more than they need and never pass a chance of eating.
I know some of you may ask what is wrong with loving food, shouldn’t people eat? People who love food hate labour. People who are gluttons will never mount to anything in life. Be not among winebibbers;among riotous eaters of flesh:
For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty:and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.(Pro 23:20-21).
Gluttons and drunkards are under the same condemnation because they take more than they need and it is unspiritual to have something in excess other than the Holy Spirit.
18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
If you love food to much just know that your love for food is a hindrance to your progress in live.Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.(1 Corinthians 6:10). I’d advise you to have develop a fasting life, get to a point where the only thing you can’t spend a day without doing is fellowshiping with God.
Gluttony is a result of laziness because they lazy hate labour and always like to relax.
How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard?when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber,a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth,and thy want as an armed man.(Proverbs 6:9-11)
