Growing up as a little boy, I always heard the saying “health is wealth” used to buttress the import of our health as humans. Searching through the holy scriptures, I also saw that it is God’s will for us to prosper and be in health even as our souls prosper.
These statements have made more sense to me and perhaps the whole world in the past few weeks as we’ve collectively witnessed a rise in the scourge of the Covid 19 epidemic, currently viewed as the greatest threat to the health and collective prosperity of the world.
With the swift spread of this virus, the world economy is under intense pressure, major cities and nations are shutting down and people going into compulsory isolation all in a bid to find survival.
It all boils down to one truth: “the healthier we are, the wealthier we can become”. So in the midst of all these:
• Let’s maintain good personal hygiene
•Let’s ensure our health is in tact
•Let’s reach out and show love to our friends, family and neighbours while maintaining social distance at least by phone calls, mobile chats and sms.
•Let’s draw closer to our maker, be sensitive to the Spirit and seek His face now more than ever before
•Let’s pray for and support all those on the frontline of action and service
•Let’s choose faith over fear, fear not but have faith in God
•Let’s stay positive, utilize our time wisely to plan, prepare and position ourselves for the best
•Let’s stay safe and remain grateful for the gift of life and good health.
At the end of it all, we will win this battle.
Every life is precious!
