Let us dedicate every moment of our lives to God.
WITHIN the foods that I like the most are: Chinese, Thai and some Indian foods. Whenever I can, I like to go to restaurants specialised in them, to be able to taste them. In turn, I know that all these types of foods are dedicated to the gods that are incorporated into cultural faith beliefs. The chefs, the combination of vegetables and proteins, in many cases meat, follow the line of that faith. It is not necessary to go too far, the Jewish faith itself requires that certain foods not be combined, much less eaten, for example, no Jew will voluntarily eat insects, shrimp, or animals whose hoof is split. Therefore, I have no doubt, every time I go to eat, I thank God for the food and immediately dedicate it to him. Because his power surpasses all curses and God himself frees me from the ties that others claim over my life.
“SO WHATEVER CONVICTION YOU HAVE ABOUT IT, KEEP IT AS SOMETHING BETWEEN YOU AND GOD. BLESSED IS HE WHOM HIS CONSCIENCE DOES NOT ACCUSE HIM FOR WHAT HE DOES."
Let us pray together: God I dedicate every moment of my life to be a witness to others. Help me to be sure what I do and follow your Holy and Perfect Will. Remind me to dedicate all foods to you and to enjoy each one of them.
Another simple example is, when you eat traditional foods from the Andean area, the chefs dedicate them to the deity of the earth, they thank what they consider to be the "mother earth", (I do not believe in this deity), well they say : the pachamama who provides it. Not for that reason, I stop eating it, well, I like when they invite me to eat chicken in peanut sauce or ceviche. What I am sure of is that the Gospel of Christ came into my life to give me freedom and enjoy every meal that God gives me, as part of his daily provision.
“BUT HE WHO HAS DOUBTS AS TO WHAT HE EATS IS CONDEMNED; BECAUSE HE DOES NOT DO IT BY CONVICTION. AND EVERYTHING THAT IS NOT DONE BY CONVICTION IS SIN.”
Let us pray together: Jesus Christ, your Gospel came into my life and transformed my mind. Today, your thoughts are what govern me and give me conviction of what I am doing, living in full freedom.
Here, the Apostle Paul is dealing with a specific topic about food dedicated to idols. However, this same matter, we can extrapolate it to everything concerning in our lives. The big fashion brands are dedicated to vanity, not for that reason, we go through life naked. Politics itself is usually dedicated to corruption and the deities that each of the politicians have; with everything and this, God is the one who puts and removes the world leaders. And we are the ones who go to the polls to elect them. In short, let us not have any doubts, let us dedicate everything to God and trust in his power to be happy in life and bear witness that Christ is alive in us.
