Excuses for Eating

Everybody has a good excuse for not attending church. If you take those excuses and apply them to other things we do (or don’t do), like eating, they might look like this list:

  • I was forced to eat as a child.
  • People who eat all the time are hypocrites; they aren’t really hungry.
  • There are so many different kinds of food, I can’t decide what to eat.
  • I used to eat, but I got bored and stopped.
  • I only eat on special occasions, like Christmas and Easter.
  • None of my friends will eat with me.
  • I’ll start eating when I get older.
  • I don’t really have time to eat.
  • I don’t believe that eating does anybody any good. It’s just a crutch.
  • Restaurants and grocery stores are only after your money.
