2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
People manage their health in order to live a long and healthy life. When people manage their health, they are able to live slightly longer. However, they cannot live twice as long.
I am going to tell you the secret formula for how to live longer.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here!
~ 2 Corinthians 5:17
Calculate this. How much longer can you live if you wake up three hours earlier than others? If you use three more hours than others every day, how many hours is that?
One day is 24 hours, right? Three hours is 1/8th of 24 hours. That means that in one day, you would be living 1/8th more than others. In thirty years, you would be living three years and nine months more than others.
After calculating it like this, it was actually less than I expected. However, there is a way you can live much longer than others compared to waking up and taking action a few hours earlier.
It is to receive God’s wisdom and take action a thousand times faster than other people.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
~ Proverbs 1:7
When you receive God’s wisdom, you know. And since you know, you will take action faster.
When you take action faster, it is as if you are living one hundred or three hundred times longer.
For example, let’s say that you were given work you needed to complete in ten days.
A person who has received God’s wisdom would know how to finish the work. And they would get it done in five days.
Since that person has done it twice as fast, he becomes a person who lives twice as long.
What You Must Do
Even if you live a long time, if you don’t know, you can’t do it. That is why you must receive God’s wisdom and live with knowledge.
This is the life of wisdom and the way to live the longest amount of time. It is the way you can do the most amount of work.
Solomon prayed and received God’s wisdom.
Don’t think that you have no time. Instead, read, listen to, and realize the wisdom contained in the Word and proverbs of the time period. Pray deeply, and thus, take action with wisdom.
