Almost every New Year, a third of resolutions have to do with eating healthier, losing weight, exercising, etc.. but what does the God’s Word say about our physical health? My Pastor preached a fantastic sermon on that today, and I will give you the points! (check out his other sermons at http://zachterry.wordpress.com/ & his wife http://juliecterry.wordpress.com/)
Proverbs was mostly written by Solomon, whom was given immense wisdom by God. Each Proverb talks about what God wishes for us in our daily lives.
Proverbs mentions health in many instances, and it can be broken down into these three things to a healthy life!
1. Eat In Limitation– Both of these passages are talking about how eating too much is unhealthy, and that you should eat just enough that you need.
” If you find honey, eat just enough- too much of it, and you will vomit.” -Proverbs 25:16
“and put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.” -Proverbs 23:2
2. Stay Active- These passages are explaining about lazy people. They never work and are sometimes even too lazy to fix themselves something to eat! Now it is harder in our day and age to be active, but try to get up even when you don’t want to, start your day, and do something active!
“How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep?” -Proverbs 6:9
“A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; but he will not even bring it back to his mouth!” -Proverbs 19:24
3. Follow God- By turning away from evil, being with God, obeying Him, praying often, and being with other believers, you can Love Jesus more! Once that happens, you will feel better about life and be happier. You will be feel new and be even more motivated to become healthier! There are 31 Proverbs, so try to take 1 month and read one a day 🙂
“Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.” -Proverbs 3:7-8
CHANGE WHO YOU ARE BEFORE YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU DO!!!
