Do You Want To Live A Long Life?  (Chinese/English) 

Do you want to live a long life?


“What man is he who desires life and longs for many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; seek, inquire for, and crave peace and pursue (go after) it! Psalm 34:12-14.”

有何人喜好存活,爱慕长寿,得享美福, 就要禁止舌头,不出恶言,嘴唇不说诡诈的话。 要离恶行善,寻求和睦,一心追求。 诗篇 34:12-14

I have told my family that I will live to be 100. That is primarily to scare them. lol. But seriously, I want to live as long as I can if the Lord wills it. Have you ever seen people who look old before their time? Well one of the reasons is their tongue. I honestly believe that our length of days is linked to what comes out of our mouth.


Our physical health is dependent on our spiritual health. The numbers of people, who have cursed God, and then died a violent death at a young age is long.


We are to use our life to speak dynamic words of grace into people’s lives, and to speak truth to all people. Also, we are to spend our lives not only by speaking truth, but by departing from evil, and seeking peace. What it says is to crave it; to seek after it.


How many people live in constant dispute with others?


They suffer the most stress, the most anguish. We have to seek peace, run after it to be at peace. Firstly, with God and this will allow us to be at peace with others as we share the peace of God with all men.


Do you want to live a long life? Then seek peace in your life by speaking peace with your mouth.


God bless you

  1. Hello,

    You know what I noticed too Keith – in my travels in life and past career in the nursing home industry – those who spoke kind words and did kind acts – just had a better time overall as they aged in place and managed to be a bright beacon or light to those they encountered. And their appearance seemed so different compared to those who were bitter and angry and spoke nasty to others.

    Great article, good thought and scriptures.
    Thank you for another good read.

    God Bless~
