The benefits of whole grains today are well known.
Think of this: whether it is spiritual or physical wisdom we seek the Bible is the ultimate Science Book, the go-to for final truth. The information Scripture gives for our health is significant when I’m considering health for myself and my husband. The Bible is the ultimate authority on human behavior; it gives us the Ten Commandments; the Gospel, the way to eternal life through forgiveness because of the work of Jesus on the Cross. But the Bible is concerned with health and beauty, too. Consider: “Thus were you decked with gold and silver; and your raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; you did eat FINE FLOUR, and honey, and oil: and you were exceeding beautiful. . .” (Ezekiel 16:13) . Remember, “fine flower” in those days must have been whole grain flower, not “white” flower.
We can find ways to get whole grains into our system! Whole grains contain protein, minerals, Vitamin E (it’s good for your heart). Who knows what we will miss when we eliminate them. Google “Old Ways Whole Grains Council” for fascinating information.

We girls can live our best lives; we take pride in how we care for ourselves and those we love. My strong advice: live by the hints and instruction in the Bible . . . for your lifetime. At times the hints are found in the most unlikely places. When you purposefully live by God’s instructions to you in Scripture, then everything that happens is “God’s fault”. We have “walked by faith.” Jesus is the spiritual example of healthy food, “The Bread of Life”.
