HOW TO GET BETTER AS YOU AGE: Don't be Outdone by Wines

summer-fit.com
Wines know the right principle--the better they get as they age. Why can't people see that? Are wines better than people? Definitely not. But we often choose to just take this wisdom for granted. Look at Moses and Caleb. They got the principle right and never got old as they aged. In fact, they looked better. 

Listen to this and learn something: "The aging of wine is potentially able to improve the quality of wine," says Wikipedia. Aging improves. See that? Are you getting a revelation here? God did not design aging so we can deteriorate. If he designed aging to better wine quality, how much more us? 

It's like, "If God clothes the grass of the fields which is here today and burned tomorrow, how much more us?" Of course, sin destroys. But that's exactly why God wants us holy and why he makes it possible through Christ. Grapes get wrinkled and rotten in time, but God can make them better through the aging process he provided. He provided holiness to work the same results for us.

So, how do we get better as we age? First, we get simple principles from how wines are aged. They are kept in oak barrels for years. It doesn't happen overnight. You need to keep wines in barrels or in their special bottles for years. To give them better quality, they're kept in the dark at least 5 years. 

Jesus' whereabouts during ages 12 to 30 are unknown. In effect, he was kept for 18 years to "age." At the right time he was released and he turned out the best quality "wine," like the one he created in Cana where he did his first miracle. 

Moses was kept in the desert for 40 years before he was released to best Pharaoh in a contest. Egypt's wine against God's wine. Pharaoh was placed in luxurious, "prosperous" environment, while Moses in near poverty, serving as Shepherd to Jethro (like being kept in a dark place to age well). Guess who came out winner? When God released him, he came out the best quality wine. 

The thing is to spend quiet times alone with God "in the dark," as it were, and to do it regularly for years. But the problem is, most church people just want to do church for the glamour and ignore spending quiet times with God because it cannot get them applause and recognition. 

If we stick with God as Jesus did, our design is to get better--in spiritual and intellectual maturity and physical health as we age--not get rotten as we grow old.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.
