To Eat or Not to Eat? Serving is the Answer

As I mentioned in this post, here is the list of Biblically-based ways to serve others that do not involve eating. Many times our boredom and discontentment lead us to overeat because we are not replacing those thoughts of food with things that can truly satisfy the longing of our soul which is to love and serve God and people. The ideas on this list do not take a lot of prep time and they can be done at any time.
Serve Your Family
Serve Your Church
  • Pray for the leaders & ministries in your church. (Heb 13:7; Eph 6:18)
  • Write a card to someone who has been sick or suffering. (2 Cor 1:3-7)
  • Call a new family or widow at your church and ask how you can serve them. (Romans 12:13)
Serve Your World
  • Read an article in the Voice of the Martyrs magazine & Pray for the persecuted church. Get the free subscription. (Hebrews 13:3)
  • Write letter to your sponsored child. Start sponsoring today. (Gal 2:10)
  • Invite a neighbor over. (Gal 6:10)
Serve Your Soul
  • Do your current Bible Study Lesson or review a lesson from a past study. (John 17:17)
  • Pray for strength to resist temptation. (John 17:15)
  • Read Romans 6 to be reminded of your freedom from sin through Christ.

But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires. Romans 13:14
