Every Day Frustrations of Eating — When Challenges Frustrate the Normal Pleasures of Food

Every Day FrustrationsProverbs 15:17, 17:1; 1 Corinthians 10:31


WEEK ONE: Eating habits, tastes and feelings about food are often deeply impacted by our childhood experiences. In this message, I have shared some of my family struggles dealing with food, some humorous, some with dire results. This message focuses on the various challenges that turn a normal pleasure into frustration. We explored questions that cause us pause in our food choices and quash our appetites — questions like whether we eat or don’t eat certain foods, whether we should diet or not diet, and what kind of health problems battle happy eating. The congregation shared some of what they found challenging. And we discussed the hassles of dealing with picky eaters, whether one’s own children or adult guests.

Finally we looked at four ways the Lord helps us with the Every Day Frustrations of Eating…
