Table Talk Tuesdays…Made To Crave by Lysa Terkeurst

(A Message based on Lysa TerKeurst’s book, Made To Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desires with God, Not Food)

“Often it is easier to play the victim than take off our masks and ask for help.”

Lysa TerKeurst, Made To Crave

Table Talk: Food – is it a friend or a foe? When food is consumed as a means to live, it is healthy and contributes to wellness. This is the friendly side of a foodie’s lifestyle. But when food is consumed from the standpoint of living to eat, it has an entirely different meaning. This is the unfriendly side of a foodie’s lifestyle. Food was and is never meant to define us. It is not our identity, our hiding place, or our cover for things we are afraid to deal with.

Reflections: Who you are is not defined by what you put in your mouth, or by what you have become as a result of your poor intake choices. You are more than the sum total of woe-is-me. You, as a follower of Christ and a pursuer of the Most High God, are who the Word of God has said you are – fearfully and wonderfully made. Consume this truth and be filled by the Divine, allowing God to help you see who you truly are in Him.

Table Talk Discussion Question: Do you consume more poor “food” choices than rich? (Poor “food” choices: self-pity, shame, guilt, pride, etc.; Rich “food” choices: Truth, Righteousness, Peace…in other words, the Word who is Christ)
