Does this picture cause any flashbacks of last night and all that Halloween candy? Was it of your kids or did you include yourself? We often want to taste it all at once or at least have a constant flow of the goodies.
Moderation, not depravation, is key. You don't have to go by the all or nothing theory but just pace yourself. ''The heart is great which shows moderation in the midst of prosperity.'' We are to save for a rainy day, not just blow it all at once. Sales often go up at the first of the month because people get their monthly checks then and stock up. The tendency to spend it all without thinking ahead is a common flaw in society.
In everything we must exhibit self-control, even something as good as honey. Proverbs 25:16
''If you find honey, eat just enough— too much of it, and you will vomit.''
