Do not bite at the bait of pleasure till you know there is no hook beneath it. ~Thomas Jefferson

I doubt if Thomas Jefferson ever tried to lose weight — but this quote works for us.  There may be momentary pleasure in that bag  of candy — but it may hook us right on the sweet tooth and give us a painful setback.

Remember, you aren’t living for your tastebuds — and you aren’t ruled by them either!

Eating to live and living for Christ,
Susan Jordan Brown
