Healthy Lifestyle 5

Study the word.

Creflor Dollar puts it this way, “You have probably heard the phrase “You are what you eat” before, and it is usually a statement that is made in reference to food. However, it can also be applied to the things we “feed” our spirits on a daily basis. The foods we eat are responsible for sustaining our physical bodies and allowing us to maintain good health. Likewise, the prosperity of our souls depends on our spiritual food choices.”

The Bible was clear about what we take in. Based on Jesus temptation to turn stones to bread, he responded  differently because of the word he had fed himself with which was a healthy lifestyle. In other words, what we put in our minds by way of our eyes, our ears, and the things that come out of our mouths, have the potential to nourish or deplete us spiritually. As Believers, we must be sure we are constantly feeding our spirits the right things, which only come from God’s Word.


 

Psalm 119:103

How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!


Junk food is the type of food that has virtually no nutritional value and is full of harmful substances that have both short-term and long-term negative effects on the body. Similarly, there are a lot of things we are exposed to every day that are spiritual junk food.

Psalm 19:10

They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.


Inspirational Nugget = The word of God is the healthy lifestyle.
