An interesting day. My insides squirmed some. My spending habits are starting to betray me. Oddly enough some of the most convicting words in Scripture for me have come from Habakkuk. It is ridiculously crazy to me how food is such a clincher when it comes to living in luxury versus living sacrificially. How many times I find myself longing for a favorite food instead of what is very good and nutritious that God has set before me.
You have made people like the fish in the sea, like the sea creatures that have no rule. The wicked foe pulls all of them up by hooks. He catches them in his net. He gathers them up in his drag net, and so he rejoices and is glad. Therefore he sacrifices to his net and burns incense to his dragnet for by his net he lives in luxury and enjoys the choicest food. Habakkuk 2
