What does 1 Timothy 4:4 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Timothy 4:4

For every creature of God is good
For food; and should be taken and used for that purpose, at all times, without distinction; even every creature which is made for food, and which is easy to be discerned by men:

and nothing to be refused;
or rejected as common and unclean, or to be abstained from at certain times:

if it be received with thanksgiving:
if not, persons are very ungrateful, and very unworthy of such favours; and it would be just in God to withhold them from them; and this they may expect at his hands, who reject them with contempt, or receive them with unthankfulness, or abstain front them in a religious way he never enjoined.
