Proverbs 4:20-22 NKJV
My son, give attention to my words. Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes. Keep them in the midst of your heart for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.
Solomon expressed confidence in the power of the words he shared. There is good reason for that confidence. The same is true for all the Word God has shared with us in the Bible. When we pay attention to the Word of God it will benefit our health. There are many instructions that, if followed, will lead to better health. There are things in the scriptures we can learn about natural things that benefit our health. There are also spiritual instructions that benefit our health. So we must do as this passage says with all God’s Word. Pay attention to the Word. Listen to it. Read it often. Meditate on it. We will be healthier as a result.
