Some Pop Vitamins


The jury is still out on the health benefits of vitaminPAM CROPPED 2013 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).”
