Holiday Health Tip #23
The Bible uses another word - "righteous" - to describe the kind of living most of us aspire to. We really WANT to do the right thing most of the time. But we all fall short of that goal. The Bible says that, too! "There is no one righteous, not even one! ... all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Doesn't really take an ancient Book to tell me that!) The glory of God is His righteousness! He is ALWAYS right! He is perfect in every way.
God needs no reminders to "do the right thing." I DO. God needs no help to "do the right thing." I DO. That's why God sent Jesus (whose birth we celebrate today). That's why Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit! To help us "do the right thing".
Today and every day, I want to do the right thing when it comes to caring for my body. I want to, I can, and I will exercise righteously and eat righteously. Personally, I'm glad for Dr. Laura's reminders. But more importantly, I'm thankful for Jesus!
