Momentary thrills and Life-time disabilities

clean compassion conscientious-ness healing insights Joan Winifred joy mind food moderation

Heard this sobering point made in a thought-provoking talk… “some of us give up a LOT to gain a little or lose a lot for very little.”

A ? for reflection…[what am i potentially forfeiting? (And why? Is it worth it?)]

For example…a recent read: (my highlight)

VIEW YOUR BODY AND YOUR LIFE AS PRECIOUS GIFTS. “By [God] we have life and move and exist.” (Acts 17:28) Appreciating that fact moves us to avoid taking needless risks, whether we are at work, driving, or choosing our recreation. A momentary thrill is not worth a life of disability!

Respect Earth, Respect Body… don’t pollute!:)

DO NOT POLLUTE YOUR BODY. “Let us cleanse ourselves of every defilement of flesh and spirit.” (2 Corinthians 7:1) People defile their bodies when they chew or smoke tobacco or abuse alcohol or drugs. Smoking, for example, “leads to disease and disability and harms nearly every organ of the body,” says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

BE “MODERATE IN HABITS.” (1 Timothy 3:2, 11) Habitually eating or drinking to excess is obviously bad for our health​—not to mention our finances! “Do not be among those who drink too much wine, among those who gorge themselves on meat, for a drunkard and a glutton will come to poverty.”​—Proverbs 23:20, 21. [excerpts: Awake No. 1 2018, The Way of Happiness/Physical Health & Resilience

 All the so-called “gift” giving and “merry” making this time of year… is it actually healthy for the body or the Earth??

{Personally, am not into “compulsory” forced-giving, over-commercialism, and over-indulgences.}

Real Peace & Good Cheer… is found in living moderation!:)
