I read somewhere today, not sure where, as we have so many sources from which information come at us these days. I get overwhelmed. I had an uncle who a mentally unstable guy once described as someone who reads everything, even what is written in the dirt. So you know reading runs in the family..but that’s a whole different ball game.
I read somewhere today that letting go of anger, bitterness and resentment or in other words practicing forgiveness, being contented and humble, and practice some kindness no doubt can actually help with the prevention of cancer. Incidentally, today at church the sermon was about laughter, the gift of laughter and the fact that laughter is good medicine, of course when used in beneficial ways. So I got to thinking, do we have the remedies to a lot of our problems right at our finger tips, evenly shared amongst all of us, freely given and cheap as dust.
Think about it……
Forgiveness- the giver always feel better than the recipient. Try it if you don’t believe me.
Love – for God and your Neighbour- God is love and love covers a multitude of sins
Feed your enemies- heap burning coals on their heads
Turn the other cheek- self- explanatory
Do only what you want done to you- you will understand this one when you need a favour.
Do not judge or condemn- two, all three sides to a story
Be quick to listen and slow to speak- we have two ears and one mouth for a reason!!
Do not avenge yourselves- revenge is sweet but God’s venegenace is sweeter
Drink water- eight glasses a day they say and most of us have access to clean water in abundance…..
Sleep, Laughter and Gratitude.
Ellen G. White’s NEW START prescription (God’s 8 rules for health) sums it perfectly. N- Nutrition, E-exercise W- water, S- sunshine, T- temperance, A- air, R- Rest and T- trust in God.
