    Recipe for a Good Life

    King Solomon starts the recipe with listening to God (Proverbs 4:20-23). The most frequent way we listen to God is to read and heed the Scriptures. The next way is to listen for and obey impulses of the Holy Spirit. These urges are subtly placed in our heart and mind. As we encounter a passage in the Bible we need to apply to our life, take courage and integrate it into our life. It will improve our character plus it will be pleasing to Almighty God.

    In addition to putting the scriptures into our daily living, let us practice the presence of God. Be conscious that the King of Kings is as close as our elbow. If we have a question just ask Him in our mind. As we get into the car, invite Him to be our co-pilot. When we have a difficult decision, inquire about God’s thoughts.

    As we continue to follow God’s urges and obey what we read in the Bible, health will follow us. Children of God do not engage in activities which harm others or our own bodies. Neither do we think evil thoughts or keep negative attitudes which hamper the functioning of our body. These suggestions of the king will lead to Christ-like living which leaves us healthier.

    Our part is to please God by the way we think and in each thing we do. With clean hearts and minds we are open to the guidance of the Lord. Now King Solomon’s recipe can now be assimilated and lived. Let’s keep walking on this path of wisdom.
