Topic: Activity – The Secret of Vitality [Seeds of Destiny 19 February 2019 Devotional]

Our anchor Scripture clearly reveals that idleness is key to decadence; slothfulness is the pathway to sickness. This means, being active or functional in life is a key to healthy living. To function or to be active in service is to dwell in health.

SCRIPTURE: By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through” Ecclesiastics 10:18.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Slothfulness is the pathway to sickness.

Our anchor Scripture clearly reveals that idleness is key to decadence; slothfulness is the pathway to sickness. This means, being active or functional in life is a key to healthy living. To function or to be active in service is to dwell in health.

Slothfulness is the cause of decay. Physically, when a building is not put to use, it begins to decay and dilapidate. The Bible makes it clear that our body is the building or the temple of the living God. ‘Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost…’1 Corinthians 6:19a.

This implies that when the body is deficient in function or work, it is prone to affliction. Any life that is not dynamic becomes problematic. Dynamism is necessary for the vitality of life. A life that is dynamic is a life that is energetic. This is why some people begin to look older than their age after their retirement from active service. When people retire from active service and they are not engaged, they begin to complain of all manner of sicknesses, ranging from hypertension to stroke, because their physical bodies are not being engaged.

Beloved, anything that expels you from functioning has exposed you to affliction. Never be comfortable with idleness because idleness of the body attracts affliction to the body. But that shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

Remember this: Slothfulness is the pathway to sickness.
