As you probably know, heart disease is much more common than it used to be. If we do not die of germ diseases, we live until some vital part of the body wears out. The heart is often the first organ to break down. Some general guidelines will help to make your heart last longer:

Good food is needed for any system of the body.  [  “I (Jesus) am the living bread that came down out of heaven. If any one eats of this bread, he shall live forever:’ John 6:51 ]

Being overweight is also hard on the heart. [ “Be careful, or your hearts will  be overweighed and burdened with  drunkenness and the worries of life:’  Luke 21:34 ]

It is believed that too much fat in the diet causes hardening of the arteries of the heart. [“Today, if you hear His voice,  do not harden your hearts as  you did in the rebellion:’ Hebrews 3:15 ]

Nervous tension leads to heart trouble. [“Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God:’ Philippians 4:6 ]
