Always Wanting More

A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. Psalm 37:16

This is sure timely. This passage makes me think of all the things I have, but it seems that I always want more. Unfortunately, that holds true for food, as well. I can't tell you how many times I've been at a restaurant and I scour the menu looking for the best food that sounds like it also includes the most food. An example would be that I might pick the meal with two grill pork chops, because it sounds like more when they aren't a ten for me. Instead, I might not have eaten the meatloaf, which is a ten, because I don't think they will serve me very much.

When I get so caught up in food, it's just as bad a vice as wanting more possessions. The thing about possessions is that they can start to possess you, your thoughts, and goals. I truly don't want to be possessed by food or possessions, so I have to periodically turn these over to Christ's very capable hands when I notice they are becoming an issue. 

Do I have to wait this long? Actually, that's what came to mind when I finished typing the previous line. No! I need to be turning the desire for food and possessions over to God on a daily basis rather than waiting until I get in over my head. A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. Psalm 37:16

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
