Good Morning August 25

It has often been said that if you have good health you have everything. Certainly, I do not discount the value of being healthy. I know that I am not a good patient when I’m not feeling well. So, I want to get back to health as soon as possible. But health is not everything. We are reminded that life has a spiritual dimension as well as a physical one. The health of our spiritual life, our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, is ultimately more important than our physical health. I know people who are not well physically, who are very limited in body, but have a vibrant, dynamic spiritual life. It is wonderful to have both physical and spiritual health, but ultimately the spiritual health really is everything. It is our spiritual health that gives life to all aspects of our being, and brings joy to others no matter what condition we find ourselves in.
