HEALTH: THE BEST OF ALL WEALTH

TEXT: JEREMIAH 8:20-22

MEMORY VERSE: “Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?” (JEREMIAH 8:22).

The popular saying that “Health is wealth” is as true as the existence of living things. Nowadays, many people in the world run the rat race for wealth acquisition to the detriment of their health.

Mahatma Ghandhi, the great civil right leader, opined that, “It is health which is real wealth, and not pieces of gold and silver.” According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 12.6 million people died as a result of living or working in an unhealthy environment in 2012, approximately 25 percent of the world total deaths.

It is disheartening to realize that many of these deaths could have been avoided if personal and environmental health practices were upheld. A hygienic youth will definitely enjoy sound physical, mental and social wellbeing to actualise his or her ambition in life.

You need to eat balanced diet, observe personal hygiene, cultivate proper sleep/rest habits, accommodate good thoughts, do regular physical exercises, and regular health check-ups.

It is important that you maintain good spiritual health by having a pure heart. You can only possess this after possessing salvation through Christ.

QUOTE: Observe personal hygiene.

CHALLENGE: God wants us to remain healthy.

PRAYER: Lord! Help me to be committed to healthy living.
