Have you ever started a job and management threw you into the position head first with no training, no handbook, and no one to ask questions to because the one person who knew what they were doing quit without notice? I have, and those are the jobs I hated the most! Many people feel that life is like that. They wish they had an instruction manual instead of the school of hard knocks on-the-job training.
But God has given us an instruction manual for life! It is called the Bible and failing to read it and apply it to your life results in the same consequences people experience when they do not read the policy and procedure handbook at work. For example, if you do not know the company's rules, you are more likely to accidentally break them. If you do not know the company's procedure for obtaining FMLA, you cannot apply for medical leave. If you do not know what benefits you are entitled to, you will never know your true value as an employee.
The Bible says, "The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23). You can think of life as a place of employment. God is the Owner of the company, but there are a lot of demonic co-workers and supervisors on the job. Just as they cause heartache at work in the natural, the same is true in the spiritual realm. Instead of leading you to obey the Owner's rules and get the benefits of blessings on earth and eternal life in heaven, they encourage you to engage in behavior that jeopardizes your livelihood and leads to an early demise followed by eternal destruction in hell.
It is especially true in terms of the sin of gluttony because the path to death is clearly visible, but you are helpless to stop. I encourage you to read the manual and obey its instructions to eat and drink for the glory of God. Life can be a great place to work when you focus on who you are truly working for, obey His directives, and use the grievance policy to report all demonic activity interfering with your work. Then you will enjoy the benefits of a long, healthy life and an incomparable retirement plan.
