20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
“God’s Recipe For Life & Health” – Part 1
In these verses we have God’s recipe for life and health. Like any recipe you must be sure to have all the ingredients if you want to get the proper results. The first ingredient is found in verse 20. You must attend to God’s Word. This is an issue of priority. It’s like having an appointment you cannot miss so you would not allow other things to distract you from that appointment. You must become that way with the Word of God. Most important to the believer today are the epistles (Acts – Revelation). We should read the whole Bible, but the epistles are where we find out two important things we must know. Who we are in Christ, and what we have been given. This is vital to learn if you want the abundant life, which includes health, that Jesus promised us. So if you want to experience life and health the first ingredient you must have is to make God’s Word a priority in your life, especially taking time to learn who you now are in Christ and what He has provided for you.
