According to Inspiration, there are specific things that belong to the Lord, and we cannot touch them lest we repeat the same sin of Achan.


Before the conquest of Jericho, God gave specific instructions to His people regarding the battle and the spoils. Since the victory belonged to the Lord, the spoils should also be consecrated to Him: “All the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the Lord: they shall come into the treasury of the Lord” (Joshua 6:19). But Achan, of the tribe of Judah, had developed a greedy character, and when he stood before those treasures (gold, silver, and Babylonian garments), he was overcome with a strong temptation.

Imagine the world without hospitals, doctors, or medications. We could get pretty close if we were more temperate with our diet, work, and sleep.

Self-indulgence isn't new, but in today's world, self-denial and self-control seem to have lost their meaning and purpose. Our society’s addiction to food is evident everywhere, from the endless hours of cooking shows available and the various “all you can eat competitions,” to the endless demand for restaurants. Nature has been twisted, and we don’t eat to live, rather live to eat.
