Note well what is before you

"When you sit to dine with a ruler, note well what is before you, and put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony." - Proverbs 23:1-2

This verse reminds me to think about what I'm going to eat before I eat it; to plan ahead. Parties/social situations are some of the most difficult situations for me to face. I see the feast and want to eat it all in mass amounts. If I instead take the time to look things over and make wise choices, I feel better as a whole.

I haven't thought too seriously about putting a knife to my throat but that certainly is a vivid picture for me to think about. Gluttony is a serious sin. One it's time I face up to.
