Heeding the Instructions to Life
When traveling, the driver will find it hard to drive while looking at the map. Keeping the eyes on the road and a map simultaneously can lead to problems. If they have someone holding the map and reading it for them, they can find their way to their destination.
In life, we need a map and we need such a navigator to lead us as we travel from day to day. God has given us a map in His Word and the Holy Spirit as a navigator. If we listen to their instructions, we will stay on the path to life. If we stray from their guidance we and those who follow us will go astray.
In the world of health, God has given us insights into the wonder and complexity of how our bodies function. Ignoring the map of how God has designed our systems will lead to less than optimal health. We can’t argue with the designer just because we want to be slack in caring for the bodies He gave us. Ignoring this design won’t take us off the path to eternal life, but our earthly life will be hindered.
As you walk on the path to eternal life, don’t ignore the less eternal effects of walking according to His design for your health while on the earth.
