Good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings. (Publlius Syrus, 1st century B.C. Latin writer)

Benjamin Franklin said that taxes and death are the two certainties of life. Syrus, on the other hand, suggests two great blessing of life. When you’re ill—even if it’s just a head cold—you really miss and long for good health. Today, many of us wish there could be a return to common sense, a blessing that too often seems to be missing from 21st century thinking.

My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. Hang on to them. (Proverbs 3:21)
