March is National Nutrition Month, but it’s important to make healthy eating a priority every day. Conditions such as obesity, diabetes, inflammation, and high blood pressure have become too common in modern American life – but we can start on the road to a healthier lifestyle by managing our nutrition today.
Does God want us to be healthy? Absolutely! We were created by Him for His purpose, and maintaining our physical being gives glory and honor to God (Romans 12:1). Our walk; how we eat and live can inspire others to live healthier too: especially our children.
Here‘s a list of eight scriptures to inspire you to the road optimum nutrition and health:
Genesis 2:9 – And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Deuteronomy 8:7-8 7 For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; 8 a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey
2 Samuel 17:27-29 27 Now it happened, when David had come to Mahanaim, that Shobi the son of Nahash from Rabbah of the people of Ammon, Machir the son of Ammiel from Lo Debar, and Barzillai the Gileadite from Rogelim, 28 brought beds and basins, earthen vessels and wheat, barley and flour, parched grain and beans, lentils and parched seeds, 29 honey and curds, sheep and cheese of the herd, for David and the people who were with him to eat. For they said, “The people are hungry and weary and thirsty in the wilderness.”
Proverbs 3:7-8 – Fear the Lord and depart from evil. 8 It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones.
Psalm 103:2-3 – 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: 3 who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases
Romans 12:1 Living Sacrifices to God – I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
1 Corinthians 6:19 – Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
3 John 1:2 – Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
