An important thought I found in my today's reading: "The man who fears God will avoid all extremes", from Ecclesiastes 7:18b. To me this says the God-fearing person will avoid both the extremes of legalism and uncontrolled liberties and will lead a balanced life, truly righteous and wise. We can apply this to what we do in all areas of our life, including our dealings with food and exercise. Life is a gift to be enjoyed, while it is used purposefully for God's glory.
