MR No. 412—Appetite

When will people learn that the appetite is not to be indulged at the expense of health? When men and women are always ailing, I inquire, is there not a cause? We want to be right, to do right, and then be cheerful and happy, believing that the Lord will bless us every day while we fight the good fight of faith, overcoming appetite and passion in the oft repeated conflict—overcoming as Christ overcame, by meeting the enemy with, “It is written.”—Letter 10, 1891. (To J. H. Kellogg, May 15, 1891.) 6MR 390.1
