Apalit, Pampanga Philippines. (02/03/2019) The 3rd of February 2019 is a special event for the youth in the Members Church of God International or KKTK, which was attended by more than 12,000 members. Inspirational words of wisdom was opened by Bro. Daniel Razon.
“Remember your Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when you shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;”
This verse used by Bro. Eli Soriano for the youth as he relayed an example on how people, especially the younger generations, are drawn into computers sitting for hours. According to studies, people who are in less activities, their health began to deteriorate especially the lumbar area. If the lower extremities are healthy, the teeth are also healthy. He cited himself as an example, going to the dentist to have a root canal or implant, when dentures started to deteriorate, bacteria will easily affect our brain. When our teeth lessen, it activates the impulse and make the body work.
Biblically proven, Moses never felt ill. At the age of 80 years old, he fasted for 40 days three times. “This is because he is always walking …” Bro. Eli reiterated. “Serving God is done whilst you are in the peak of your youth.” His parting words, “Pray before standing up.”
