Godly living is conducive to healthiness of mind and body

Arthur PinkGodly living is conducive to healthiness of mind and body, and other things being equal that will be one of its bi-products. By “other things being equal” we mean: as in the case of one who is not suffering for the sins of his father; who did not ruin his constitution by debauchery before conversion; and who exercises ordinary common sense in attending to the elementary rules of hygiene. One who is “temperate in all things” (1 Corinthians 9:25) will escape many or all of those ills which is the price which has to be paid for intemperance. Scripture does not require us to be either Spartans or Epicureans but to “let our moderation be known unto all” (Philippians 4:5). God

 

“giveth richly all things to enjoy” (1 Timothy 6:17),

 

yet not to abuse.

 

“Every creature of God is good and nothing to be refused” (1 Timothy 4:4)

 

providing it is used aright, but His choicest creatures p rove harmful if used to excess. God has provided great variety in nature, and each one has to learn for himself what best suits him and deny himself of that which disagrees.

    It’s interesting how when we put GOD first and live a life of loving obedience to Him, as a general rule good effects follow at times on this side of eternity; however, if we make healthiness an idol or anything else for that matter, we lose God and eventually the very idol for that matter.
