Godly Attitude Toward Diet

Ryan Lochte

Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte did not trust the local food when he competed in Beijing four years ago. So he went to McDonald’s for most meals, and as a result says he gained about ten pounds.

Since then, Lochte has become somewhat of a fanatic about eating a healthy diet. He thinks that this has been a big part of the reason for his success in the 2012 Olympics.

The Bible says that a Christian’s body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and therefore we should honor God with our bodies (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). This principle implies that we should give some thought to our daily diet.

Daniel and his friends were blessed because they chose a healthy diet over the royal food and drink prescribed by the king (Daniel 1). We can expect to be blessed also if we make healthy choices about what we eat and drink.

Trying to live a healthy lifestyle is one way that we can honor God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 says, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
