Eat Right, Stay Healthy – Part 2

Key Verse

“And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:” Leviticus 11:10

Text — Leviticus 11:9-14


Our Bible passage is God’s instruction to the children of Israel on diet; hence, the instruction can be referred to as dietary laws. The reasons for the laws range from God’s desire to make Israel a holy nation, separate from the other nations, give them opportunity to demonstrate obedience to Him and a way of ensuring a healthy lifestyle. Many diseases and problems were prevented by obedience to these dietary laws.

God is still concerned about our overall health; physically and spiritually today. He wants us to eat to enhance and not to endanger our health. For us to be successful in life, we must first endeavour to be healthy. What we eat go a long way to determine our health condition. Avoid unhealthy eating habit, do not eat too much, but eat balanced diet and drink adequate water. Take lots of fruits and vegetables and avoid junks.

Also, you must be conscious and take care of your spiritual health. Feed on the pure word of God for your spiritual growth. Read, study, meditate on and obey the word of God.
