LIVE LONG AND PROSPER
‘Wisdom will make the hours of your day more profitable [prosperous], and the years of your life more fruitful’. [Proverbs 9:11]
I heard on classic fm yesterday that the oldest man in the world is from China and is 116 years old! Can’t get your head around it can you? He puts it down to
- Getting up early in the morning
- Eating little and often
The bible teaches much on this subject. In the above verse we learn that wisdom gives us longevity. I guess that makes sense as wisdom is knowledge and experience put in to practice through common sense and godliness! Common sense say’s for example don’t smoke because it kills and destroys your body! Godly wisdom say’s your body is not yours but borrowed from God, so take care as to what you put in it and how you care for it!
I’ll look at this a bit more soon; but for now, “live long and prosper”
PRAYER heavenly Father God, it is your will that we should increase and not decrease. Help me I pray to live long and to prosper so that my life may bring honour and glory to you. In Jesus’ name amen
