CLEAN up your act and boost your health caught my attention in a daily newspaper.
It mentioned the fact indoor air pollution is causing an epidemic of respiratory disease with the UK being the worst affected country in Europe.
Air quality tests carried out in homes in London revealed that the air was 3.5 times worse inside than it was outdoors.
We hear so much about the problem of pollution with plastics in our world today but what about the simple things such as the use of candles in our homes.
The article mentioned using paraffin wax candles has been found to produce much higher levels of toxins than those with a ‘soot free’ wick.
It is certainly ‘Something to think about’ as we consider what we use daily in our homes and what detriment they bring to our lives. Perhaps we should think carefully what harm we are doing to the environment around us.
Jesus Christ often spoke about the ‘birds of the air’ and the ‘flowers of the field’ that God cared for them daily.
“Are you not worth more than these?” he asked the people who were listening to him all those years ago.
The Bible brings those same words to us today, telling us of the great love of God which comes to us through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
