3 John 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.
is the foundation of all human activity. A sickly man cannot even think healthily. Men would be surprised if they were able to take a survey, to find how many of the things which have filled the world with feuds and laden with errors, may be traced back to a disordered stomach. Who would go to sea in a leaky vessel?
(K. Braune, D. D.)
