We saw the Phantom of the Opera movie over the summer. And my mom gave us the CD, which the kids play constantly. They know every word. They will break out into song at any odd moments. And the kids will serenade each other with Phantom words.
There’s an awful part at the end, where the Phantom tries to trap Christine into staying with him by threatening to kill Raoul, her true love, if she does not. He sings:
Start a new life with me – Buy his freedom with your love!
Refuse me, and you send your lover to his death!
This is the choice – This is the point of no return!
So, do you end your days with me,
or do you send him to his grave?
Make your choice!
What a horrible choice! Either she suffers or her true love dies.
The choice for how to eat is not so terrible; clearly one choice has advantages. Here are your choices.
Eat poorly and you will: feel awful, look sickly, and lack stamina for serving God and others.
Eat healthfully and you will: feel good, look good, and do good.
So, friends, make your choice. Which do you choose?
At GNOWFGLINS, we choose to eat healthfully to honor our Creator. The benefits are clearly better on the side of eating well, but ultimately our health and abilities are given by God.
