Hot Topics... Drugs: Rx Overload
We should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him Who is the Head, Christ, from Whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
Ephesians 4:14-16 (NKJV)
Is Pharma a helpful cure or an evil con? I could argue both sides of that question. Some wonder drugs have done wonderful things.

But when is enough, enough? Or too much? Because drugs also invite dependence, and some of their side effects make us worse.

Americans lead the world in the pill-popping consumption of prescription drugs. Not to mention vitamins, supplements and over-the-counter medications.

Perhaps our manufactured fantasies of fashion models and super-heroes foster a notion of easy fixes... rather than the gradual progression of natural cures and healthy habits.

To my ailing Christian kin: seek God first. Become savvy and do your research. Due diligence can save you from regret. Blind trust is rarely a good idea, even in a well-intentioned doctor.

Only one Man is worthy of blind trust.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
