Most people value religion because we think life beyond this earth is vital and important. But Christian faith also gives meaning and purpose here on this earth as well!
It gives us a framework for priorities and puts stress in its proper place. It gives us comfort in illness and crisis. It supports a healthy lifestyle and the avoidance of things that hurt our bodies. Church-goers have nearly one-half the risk of heart attack!
And it helps us develop supportive, loving relationships. It gives us reasons for serving and ministering to others. It makes us a part of something thats bigger and larger than ourselves.
In other words, Christianity isnt just for the life beyond, it blesses this life too. God bless you!
