Overindulge? Who Me?
2 Peter: 1:5-6: Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness.
I turned on the TV to hear the news and the weather report. In a commercial, the person said this is the season “of overspending and overindulging.”
Years ago, a friend told me she gains 10-15 pounds every Christmas season. My mind pictured her in January with her eyes bulging out of her head as she tried to squeeze into her jeans. Vaseline on her legs wouldn’t have helped her slide her body into those jeans.
An acquaintance told me that when his credit card bill from last Christmas came it was as high as the national debt.
