Q: Is it a sin to be overweight?

A: There are many reasons people are overweight—physical, psychological, emotional. But the bottom line is people are overweight because they give in to the draws of the flesh, including psychological and emotional draws.

Is being overweight sin? Sin is simply “missing the mark” that the Holy Spirit has set for us. When we miss it in any area of life, it’s because we look for our answers to our challenges (including how much we weigh) from some other source. The Holy Spirit is well able to guide each of us in the area of good nutrition and healthy weight management. All we have to do is ask Him and trust Him to give us the right plan and direction. He will do it!
