The jury is still out on the health benefits of vitamin and mineral supplements.
Some tout their effectiveness while others say they do little to improve our over-all health.
Personally, I can tell a big difference when I take certain vitamins. Married to a ‘vegetarian,’ I have occasionally suffered with anemia. When I’ve ‘added’ iron supplements to my diet, I’ve had increased energy.
Spiritually, I benefit from specific character traits and virtues.
“But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge, self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love (2 Peter 1:5-7 NKJ). Some ‘pop vitamins.’
I prefer the pursuit of virtues.
“For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:8 NKJ).”
