The Sonshine Vitamin

Read Jeremiah 13:1 through 14:22; 1 Thessalonians 5:1–28

Up to 50 percent of the world’s population lack adequate amounts of vitamin D. Researchers have discovered that vitamin D protects the body from a number of diseases, including cancer, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis. This vitamin provides health in the bones, teeth, and brain. Spending time in the sun allows the skin to absorb its rays and synthesize vitamin D. Lack of time in the sun results in a poor immune system and potential for disease.

You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness (1 Thessalonians 5:5).

The health of the human body relies on exposure to the sun. The health of the spirit relies on regular exposure to the Son. As children of the Light, believers need regular time in Jesus’ presence to build strong faith and a healthy understanding of His truths. That time with Jesus produces a healthy glow in the believer and creates a desire to know the Source of that life.

Challenge for Today: Live as a child of the day, and spend time in the Son.
