However, yesterday, as I was reading my text book, it talked about how to live healthy by lowering one's stress. It said the research shows that people who attend church at least once a week and read their bibles and pray daily have less stress and on average live 7 years longer then people that do not have God in their lives.
So science and research shows God helps us live healthier lives. Not to mention eternity after life.
My kids and I read Proverbs each day and choose a section that we can think about throughout the day. In today's Proverb 8:8 wisdom speaks of her words not being crooked or perverse. When I think of the word perverse, I realize it means to use in a way not intended. I tend to use sarcasm often in my daily speech. Twisting words and not truly saying what I real think or mean. I thank God for reminding me with his word that this way of communication is not wise or effective. I hope to correct this habit and be more like Horton " I meant what I said, and I said what I meant."
