Last week was a bad one with two celebrity suicides. I didn't know either one of them: a guy who was a known chef on a cooking channel and a gal who was part of the fashion industry. Very successful people.
I heard a couple of interviews given by professionals who work with those dealing with mental health issues. They discussed what could have gone wrong. Or how some thing like this could be prevented. I listened to the talk, but not once did I hear anyone say anything about the spiritual side of things.
Since we are made physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual, I wondered if the spiritual side of things could have been a contributing factor?
Look to Jesus!
~ By Anne Graham Lotz
"The wage of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
~ Romans 6:23 NIV
"The wonderful good news of the Gospel was shouted out so clearly by the apostle Paul that it still resounds today. The wages of sin is physical death and spiritual deadness as well. BUT the gift of God is eternal life, spiritual life, abundant life through faith in Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God.
"What do you think you have to add to your existence in order to experience real life?
"Increasing your investment portfolio?
"Traveling to more exotic destinations?
"Possessing the latest car or computer?
"Achieving public recognition?
"Reaching your professional goal?
"Wearing the trendiest fashion?
"If you want purpose and meaning and satisfaction and fulfillment and peace and hope and joy and abundant life that lasts forever, look to Jesus!"
