A Long Life

Most people want to live a long and healthy life. Yet we do not think of what we must do to attain it in our youth or regain it in our riper years. The Bible gives us a number of things that can help us attain not only length of days but good health in the latter years. Of course decline is inevitable and death is certain, unless the rapture happens first, but I believe these coupled with common sense will help you have a longer and happier life. I will only write out Ephesians 6: 1-3 and give the references for you to look up. Children obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and thy mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.

Proverbs 3:1-4, 13-16 and 28:16. Exodus 20:12 Deuteronomy 4:22-26, 39-40. 5:16, 31-33. 6:1-3. 11:8-9. 17:14-20. 22:6-7. 25:13-16. 30:15-20. 32:44-47. I Kings 3:14 Psalms 34:12-14. You will see that these include business dealings and treatment of wildlife! And don’t forget a joyful and thankful attitude. While God does take some of His children home early, and is always right in doing so, if you honor God and obey these Scriptures you may well find your health improving and life increasing. I hope this has been a blessing and help to you.
