“No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.” –Psalm 84:11
Read: Psalm 84
Isn’t it interesting that at the mere mention of the words “good posture,” we automatically pull our shoulders back? (Admit it, you sat up a little taller in your chair as you read that sentence.) Well, if it helps, I sat up as I wrote it. Many of you don’t know, but two years ago I had cervical spine surgery; a couple of fusions and an artificial disk were all my neck needed. Okay, basically I have a brand new neck. And of the many rehab mandatories, a lifetime of maintaining good posture is at the top of the list. That’s why I’m constantly asking my wife to remind me of it.
Good posture. Physically and spiritually. Isn’t that the goal each day? Am I eating right? Am I reading my Bible? Am I walking uprightly in my pursuit of abundant living? When it comes to my very small, brief life, there’s a lot I think I need, but I want nothing more than a backbone for Christ, while protecting the frame He designed around it.
