We are what we eat. (Old proverb)
It is a scientifically proven fact that our food choices affect our heath. Every cell in our body is affected by the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe. As we learn more about nutrients and additives in our food, we can make wiser decisions about what we eat. But, is there something even more important than our physical diet?
The things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them [.] . . . —murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what defile a person. (Matthew 15:17-20)
