“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth,” —3 John 1:2. Health is a great blessing and gift of God. It is our responsibility to take care of this wonderful gift. You might ask: “How is that possible? Either health is a gift or it is not. What have we to do with it?” The answer is simple. Our bodies run on fuel, and we put the fuel into our bodies. We can put good fuel or poor fuel into them. We can even put poison into them which would kill them. God places the responsibility on us. Some foods are nutritious and nourishing, and strengthen our bodies. Other foods are not nutritious, and actually weaken our bodies. Thus, we need to become good stewards of our health. In 1 Corinthians 4:2, we read, “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” We need to be faithful to God, even in this matter of eating. With each bite, we are either building health or destroying it. Which will you do?

I received your catalog and learned so much about applying the Bible to every day life just by reading your catalog! Your explanation of how you choose books brought conviction to me about how I have chosen my entertainments in the past and I am praying to make changes based on your biblical example and arguments. I have ordered as many as I can afford right now and plan to just check off each one until I own everything that you sell. Thank you for all of the care that you put into your selections and for being trustworthy.
