If I'm a Christian, Do My Actions Show in the Buffet Line?

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

 So, if I'm to be an example of how the Lord works in me, and I'm pigging out at the Chinese buffet, am I being a good example to my family and others there? If people know I'm a Christian, do my actions show in the buffet line? I know there have been many times when I have raced to get the last of something I really wanted, knowing someone else wanted it to. 

There have been times that I have filled my plate so high that it makes even strangers gawk wondering how I can eat all of that. Somehow, I convinced myself that I would only fill one plate at the buffet, so I really make that plate count. It takes extreme precision and balance to walk back without spilling the mountain of food on my plate.

Similarly, I have found that buffets are a weakness of mine, but I planned some family gatherings a week ago and two of the them were at buffets. Not to mention a trip to the buffet that I arranged this week for the younger ones. Am I walking in faith and purity, if I do things that for one aren't healthy for my body, but also work a wedge in my relationship with Christ? Fortunately for me, Christ has this on my heart, because I need to turn it over to His very capable hands. I need to be a much better example of my faith!  Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
