What’s the secret? God’s people continue their quest to obtain long life and good health with diet, exercise and supplements and still many continue to fall ill and die prematurely. Even though these are wise choices, they are not enough. What’s the secret to living a healthy life?
God reveals the secret to living a healthy life in Proverbs 4:20-22. He says, “My son, attend to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their body.”
We need to remember that we are spiritual beings who live inside physical bodies. And if we do not attend to our spiritual needs we will wear out and become weak spiritually and physically.
So how do we attend to our spiritual needs?
1. Did you notice that He says, “My son”? He is referring to a spiritual family member. If you aren’t a member yet, this is the first step to living a healthy life.
2. He instructs us to attend to His words. We are to listen and do what the Word says to do.
3. He tells us to submit to His sayings, which means we are to yield or surrender to the will or authority and power of the Word of God.
4. Then He tells us to not allow biblical teachings to depart from our sight. We are to live life entwined with His teachings.
All these other things that we do like eating better, exercising and taking supplements are good, but they do not take the place of God’s Word and promise to us. If we attend to our spiritual needs according to His ways then He promises healing and health to all our flesh.
