I love food.  Well, most food (I’m not a big fan of Indian cuisine). I find that food satisfies me. I delight in a good meal. I use it to reward meat loafmyself after I’ve worked hard, I use it to comfort myself when I’m depressed. Food is one of my idols.

Just one example. In Proverbs 30:8 it says,richie rich

Give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is my portion, 9 Lest I be full and deny Thee and say, “Who is the Lord?” Or lest I be in want and steal, and profane the name of my God.
