Hebrews 11:7 "By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith."

Have you ever heard the term,”there’s always warning before destruction?"  Well just like God warned Noah, He also warns us before we reach the point of destruction (obesity, sickness, disease) and we end up having to become reactive to our situation rather than being PROACTIVE.  Some ways that we can be more proactive with our health is simply by choosing to skip out on having dessert with every meal.  Instead, have desert once a week as a reward.  Another proactive decision would be to take time on Sunday to prepare your healthy meals for a couple days so that when everyone at the office is ordering something unhealthy, you can already be prepared to make the healthy choice. 

Just like Noah, we have to listen to the warnings from God for our lives so much that we proactively construct a healthy ark of protection around our bodies and what we put into it, so that we can essentially be healthy enough to carry out the will of God for our lives.
