“My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh” (Proverbs 4:20).

Charles Capps says, “Medical Science tells us there are many incurable diseases, such as some forms of cancer, arthritis, heart diseases, and AIDS, among others. Even though there are no known medical cure for many diseases, God’s Word is a supernatural cure and offers supernatural hope to all who are afflicted. The Bible is the manufacturer’s handbook revealing how to take care of what God has made.” Our text gives us divine counsel concerning our health and well-being, which is profitable for youths who desire to live a healthy life.
