  • Almost two-thirds of Americans are overweight (BMI between 25 and 29.9), obese (BMI between 30 and 39.9), or extremely obese (BMI of 40 and above). An obese person spends $900 more a year in medical expenses than a person of normal weight. American adult caloric intake has risen from 1,854 to 2,002 calories per day over the past 20 years. This 148-calorie per day increase equals a weight gain of 15 pounds per year.

    Cigarette smoking, followed by poor diet and physical inactivity, are the leading preventable causes of death in America.

  • The Sunday school teacher was checking her students’ knowledge of Proverbs. She asked, “Cleanliness is next to what?” A small boy replied, “Impossible.”

    Sometimes cleanliness does seem nearly impossible. Why? Because sin is so strong and never-ending. Once we are cleansed from sin, it comes right back to tempt us again. It is very hard to overcome some sins such as greed, lust, ill will, anger and gossip.
