Seems that with financial prosperity overeating, soda and unhealthy foods are emerging and leading to problems with obesity and poor health. I'm reminded of a story about Daniel, the prophet from the Old Testament, who recommended to the king a diet of vegetables and water rather than rich foods and wine for his servants. After just 10 days the healthy results of this diet impressed King Nebuchadnezzar. (Daniel 1:12-16)
For people with more than enough the challenge is to demonstrate self restraint in order live and eat simply, and assist others who are lacking. I'm reminded of a slogan from the 70's, "Live simply, so that others might simply live." And paradoxically, through living simply the richness and quality of life is actually enhanced.
