Stop drinking only water and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses. – 1 Timothy 5:23
You have always shown concern our bodies that house your Spirit. You fed Elijah in the cave and by the brook. You fed your disciples by the Sea of Galilee. You fed thousands miraculously too. It encourages me to see you tell Timothy to settle his stomach with wine. You want us to be kind and gentle to our bodies. Help me take this to heart by treating my body with the love and respect that you do. Give me wholesome remedies for stress and fatigue. Make me strong to do your will and patient in affliction. I want to serve you whether with a healthy body or in firm. Give me wisdom to be a healthy person, dear Jesus.
