Since March, I decided to go on a diet to get rid of 5 kilo. You know, spring cleaning! On this side of the continent (Canada), it doesn’t look like spring yet, but it is coming! And when Spring will show up its sunny face, colorful colors and mild temperatures, then Summer will certainly follow with its warmth and good humour …
But, in the mean time, my problem is that I have doubts about the accuracy of the scale in our bathroom. It does not seem to cooperate with me to meet my goal. Some days, it likes to add kilogrammes or pounds.
So, I really miss the mechanical scale, the one with the needle, I could manipulate, change the needle’s position to get a few pounds less 😉 Now, I guess you guys would say: “My dear Debora, if you are XL or XXL and beyond, changing your scale numbers, will not effect the image you’ll get from your mirror and that little spring dress will remain stuck at your shoulders 😮 Either, you accept yourself as God sees you or just respect your diet! ” True! !
Isn’t that what we often do? Manipulate, use, change in our favor the moral law given to the protection of our society, our family, our world …? Then, we call it “freedom”, “empowerment”, “tolerance”, “evolution “,” innovation “and so on. But very often, all that is just sin and the bondage of sin. (Romans 6:16-17, 2 Peter 2:9)
For God, whose scales are always calibrated, too many pounds is too many pounds, what is good is good, what is bad is bad. He is an absolute God (Malachi 3:6) You can’t compromise with His laws, change or manipulate them according to your moods and your own pleasure with these kind of arguments: “God is love, He is a forgiving God, God understands my situation … “(which is true, but used wrongly)
Finally, I will choose to keep my digital scale and abide by the rules, the terms of my diet to lose those pounds and kilo and welcome the summer in good spirits and good health!
What about you? Will you choose to keep, observe, obey the laws and requirements of the Absolute God for the salvation of your soul, your society, your family …?
Take Care !
