Adding supplements to our diets has become common. Multivitamins, herbs, fish oil, antioxidants are household names in many varieties as folks seek to complement their food with missing ingredients to boost health and prevent major maladies. I take a few of these myself and hope to extend healthy living for as long as possible! Yesterday I noticed a passage in Peter's second letter that discussed the supplements that God wants us to take to reinforce our spiritual health as believers in Him and His Son:
2 Peter 1:5-7 In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God's promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
And there is a great promise attached to taking these supplements:
2 Peter 1:10b-11 ...Do these things, and you will never fall away. Then God will give you a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
blessings as you take your daily supplements!
