Elixir of Life

wisdom3My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, and so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (Pro 3:1-6 NKJ)

Four years ago, archaeologists discovered a two-hundred-year-old glass bottle that once said to contain the “Elixir of Long Life.”  A research team tracked down the original German recipe used to create the elixir for fending off death.   

More recently, in the port of Alexandria, Egypt, a large black granite sarcophagus was unearthed.  Inside they found three decomposing mummies floating in a red liquid. Rumors surfaced that the “mummy juice” contained medicinal or supernatural properties, with locals anxious to bottle the stuff, and other wanting to drink this magical potion.  Want some!

Actually, the key to a long life is simple.  Keep the Word of God close to you and put what you hear and read into practice. Proverbs tells us that ‘length of days, and long life and peace’ will be added to you.  Don’t doubt, just trust God with all your being.  There is a pathway set before you, ordained by the Lord, he will direct your path.
