2 Kings 4 vs. 40 (NIV)
The stew was poured out for the men, but as they began to eat it, they cried out, “Man of God, there is death in the pot!” And they could not eat it.
Chronic diseases – such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, and arthritis – are the leading causes of disability and death here the United States. Because heart disease, diabetes, and stroke have been directly linked to diet, those men of ancient times cried out there is D.EAT.H in the pot because death is three-fifths 0f what we eat.
While the prevalence of these diseases is on the rise, if you are at risk or been diagnosed with any of these chronic ailments, you can be encouraged, you oversee what goes into your pot.
The story in 2 Kings goes on to say that Elisha threw some meal into the pot, and then the men were able to eat the stew. In other words, changes had to be made for the men to eat and live.
In many cases lowering your rate for these diseases can be attained without medications with just a few lifestyle changes. Exercise, putting down the cigarettes and eating a high fiber low-fat diet will prep you for a new you. It’s time for you to makes some changes, it’s time for you to live.
