Good Morning August 30

An internet article was advertised on the Comcast home page a few days ago entitled “Secrets of people who live to be 100”. I didn’t read all the article, but it highlighted foods that are supposed to extend life, and various other health habits for longevity. Now it is certainly right to cultivate healthy habits, and exercise proper stewardship of our bodies. They are God’s creation, and to be treated properly. But why is 100 so wonderful, and a goal to desire? Understand that I approach all issues from the point of view of our faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “life is more than food, and the body more than clothing”(Matthew 6:25), and we could add, mere years of existence. Our time on earth is given to us to seek to know the Lord by faith, and to live the days of our life to His glory however He leads us to do that. We also know that this life is not all there is whether we are given 40, 80, or 120 years. Out goal in not to add years, but to learn to love our God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.(Luke 10:27)
