We are fast approaching the end of another school year. If you are like many, you are feeling tired. When we are tired our relationships suffer. Our work suffers. Rick Warren lists three habits from the Bible that we should follow to have strength.
1. Get regular rest. Psalm 127:2 (NLT) - "It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones." Sometimes the most spiritual thing we can do is take a nap (not now, finish reading, please). When we rob our bodies of the rest God designed us to have, we weaken and destroy the great gift He has given us.
2. Eat a balanced diet. Psalm 119:23 (NLT) - "You made me; you created me. Now give me the sense to follow your commands" Modern science tells us that we are what we eat. If we put the right fuel in our bodies, they will work at maximum efficiency. If you put diesel fuel in a normal car -- it will run, but only for a short time and with a lot of black smoke. We need to put the right fuel in our bodies so they can run at their peak.
3. Exercise regularly. 1 Corinthians 6:20 - (NLT) - "So you must honor God with your body." We are made to be active. So ---- get active. Plan to exercise daily. Find something you like to do and do it. It is glorifying to God when we exercise and keep our bodies fit.
Well, what are you waiting for? Go get healthy!
