In our efforts to be healthy...

In our efforts to be healthy, we also need to keep an eternal perspective. Rather than focusing all our energy, thoughts and plans on what goes into our bodies, let us stop to consider this proverb.

Proverbs 3:7,8
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the LORD and depart from evil.
It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.

I'm curious to hear your thoughts on this. How do these words apply to our present health? Please post a comment to share!

I completely agree! We may be saved but living a life of sin leads to death... but it may not be a sudden death, instead your body will be burdened with physical ailments. I've seen it firsthand :o)
