Proverbs 10:27 NIV

By March 10, 2024No Comments

“The fear of the Lord adds length to life, but the years of the wicked are cut short.”

I saw this in an article the other day, “An international team of public health specialists, addiction researchers, cardiovascular and metabolic health professionals and nutritionists has found that switching from a typical Western diet to a healthier regimen could add 10 years of life for the average middle-aged person.” No real surprise. Who hasn’t been hearing about healthy diets all their life. Other articles talked about physical activity or even being optimistic as ways to make your life span longer. Solomon also offers a plan. He lets us know that a proper respect for God and His ways will lengthen your life while being a wicked, evil person is pretty much a guarantee to shorten it. Doesn’t seem like a difficult choice, but for many it is. The number one reason it is a challenge for lots of people is pride. They do not want to admit that God is right and they are wrong. Sometimes they don’t even want to admit there is a God. God offers a long list of benefits for those who live life according to His design. That makes sense as we consider that life is His invention and like any inventor He knows what makes it operate best. Today live in respect of God and His plan and live. #BeTheEdge
