Want to Live Longer? Live for God!
I came across an interesting study today that talked about how to live longer. Instead of saying “eating kale” or “exercise more”, it said the key to a long and healthy life was to “live meaningfully”. Huh.
I kept reading and they said that people who rated themselves as living a meaningful life were tied to their health and wealth. And I started to think, “Wow! Can you imagine if they knew God’s purpose in their life? How much more meaningful can you get than that?”
Ephesians 2:10 says “We are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Handiwork is an interesting choice of word, isn’t it?
We were MADE by Him, so He has His purpose in store for us.
So, I suppose what they said is true! We will love longer because of our meaningful life in living for Him. How does forever sound?
