Vitamins are organic substances that our bodies need to develop and function normal. Some of these micronutrients are either not produced or not enough in the body but must be derived from the food we eat. Vitamins are generally grouped as either Fat or Water Soluble. Vitamin Deficiency causes Fatigue, Depression, Dry skin and hair and Poor wound healing.
We Somtimes hear the saying, ” You are what you eat “and it’s true, of course,that the quality of our food affects our physical and mental well-being. However more important than a well-balanced diet are the ideas we feed into our minds. Good thoughts and ideas are like spiritual vitamins.Without them we can’t develop and have a Christ like character to function effectively. Let’s see what vitamins we might be lacking or running low on.
My First Morning Read: Finally, brethren,if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise think on these things. ( Philippians 4:8 Read).
This truth came back to my mind when I read a scientific display that appeared in a museum years ago. The display showed Eight rats from the same litter stuffed and mounted
Posted above each was a list of the VITAMINS they had been FED.The First rat was LARGE and Well formed because it’s diet had all the essential ingredients and vitamins needed for normal growth and functions.
The second rat had one of the vitamins crosed out,and the other rats vitamins were deleted from the their lists.Needless to say that each rat looked more thin and misshapen than the previous one. No doubt about it -VITAMINS are Important!
If Believers do not feed their minds on good thoughts, they are depriving themselves of the nutrients needed to grow strong in God. Let’s face it, if we try to live on a diet of negativity, corruption,deception, falsehood, reading thrash we are not going to grow spiritually in the likeness of Christ. On the other hand by concentrating on what’s wholesome we will eventually become a good human being,not perfect but Christ like because no human is perfect, I’m sorry to burst our bubbles. We are flawed flesh and blood.
The Apostle Paul’s Instructions.
In Philippians 4 :8, a popular scripture and verse. Paul is instructing the brethren in Philippi to think about things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous,and praiseworthy. In a nutshell it comes down to MEDITATION and Focusing on things that pleasing to God and our fellowmen. Failure to do this we will suffer from VITAMIN DEFICIENCY.
