"Find out who you are and do it on purpose," once said Dolly Parton.
There's age-old wisdom in that statement.
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge [of My law, where I reveal My will]," said God in Hosea 4:6 of the Bible.
Did you know God's laws, as shown in the Bible, included a lot of tips of how to be healthy emotionally, physically and financially? His will is for us to be our very best selves and to love the world around us. He wants us to educate ourselves on how to take care of ourselves SO THAT we can be the kind of people who give back to those around us.
It might sound cliche, but we can either sit and wait around for life to happen to us, or we can be proactive and happen to life! When it comes to our health there are things we can do to be proactive about getting and staying healthy. GETTING EDUCATED is STEP #1.
