Seven deadly sins
Where greed places ultimate value and identity in possessions gluttony in its strictest sense is excessive eating or drinking. In our current confused culture I would argue that gluttony manifests itself in other forms though — not only excessive eating and drinking but excessive attention to food and drink; which means the rake thin person can be as much a glutton as the sumo-sized.
This is the key distinction between gluttony which is bad and feasting which is good. Feasting is a community activity. It is usually in response to an event or occasion that the community wants to acknowledge birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries and is enjoyed with other members of the community. By contrast, the glutton is only interested in his own desires and needs. There is no community consideration for the glutton. Evidence that greed could be an area of sinful weakness for us can be found in the zeal with which we guard our stuff.
If we are reluctant to open our homes, uneasy about lending things we own to other people, or over-sensitive if things we possess get lost or damaged, then we are probably slaves to greed. It is easy to mask this under a pretence of good-stewardship; but that is only a mask. Eternal Providence put me in charge of caring for their health.
