Nicholes - Discipline in What I Eat
Many who read this devotional commentary know that I have type II diabetes. When I was diagnosed several years ago the doctor told me I had a choice. I could go ahead and eat everything just like I had been doing or I could stop eating anything with sugar added. He went on to tell me that many who continue to eat things with sugar added end up have their feet and legs amputated and some go blind. He knew that I ministered to young people and asked me if I would tell an alcoholic or a drug addict, wanting to quit, that it would be ok to continue drinking some or taking some drugs but just try to taper off. Of course, he made his point that I needed to stop eating sugar items. Yes, it has taken discipline but I have followed his advice and stopped eating sugar items. (Lou Nicholes - Missionary/Author).
