I’m looking to lose weight.

Although I’m open to change, I’ve not made any New Year’s resolutions.

Mentally I have decided to start reading, I’ve that stack of books to get through.

One that warrants attention is my Holman Standard Bible.

It contains a nifty reading plan to help the reader get through the whole caboodle in 365 days.

I’ve done this before, but my radar is now attuned to food.

As I made my way through the early chapters of Genesis I had a “light bulb” moment.

For the very first time I looked at what wasn’t written, instead of what was written.

“So God created man in his own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female.

God blessed them, and God said to them,”Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it.

Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth”

God also said, “Look I have given you every seed bearing plant on the surface of the entire earth, and every tree whose fruit contains seed.  This food will be for you, for all the wildlife of the earth, for every bird of the sky, and for every creature that crawls on the earth – everything having the breath of life in it. I have given thee every green plant for food.”

Genesis 1:27-30 

I’ve always been happy to eat meat, but the inference here is that when Adam was placed in paradise he was to be a vegetarian.

I haven’t the space to debate what happened next, and a Christian can by all means eat meat, but it quite blatantly wasn’t part of God’s initial template.

A further passages to ponder:-

1 Corinthians 10:23-33
