Devotional: DEADLINESS OF CONTAGION

πŸ”‘πŸ“–```KEY VERSE:``` _*"And he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, It seemeth to me there is as it were a plague in the house" (LEVITICUS 14:35).*_


     *The family is a core unit that builds up the societal fabric. Its physical or spiritual wellbeing denotes the health of the nation or church. Recently, a mother came home with severe fever and was treating herself for malaria without carrying out necessary tests. Within days,

the entire household was having same feverish condition. Eventually, clinical test confirmed it was not just malaria.*

     *Leprosy is a painless but highly infectious disease, which incapacitates the individual. Invasive by nature, it easily affects all the diseased associates. No wonder God stipulated to the Israelites what householders must do to ensure living in a hygienically disease-free environment. The priests, as representatives of God, had the responsibility of investigating any reported case within the community.*


     *While leprosy might not be prevalent today, there are other contagions that are equally as deadly. Within the family,

therefore, everyone should take responsibility and observe all stipulated protocols to keep diseases at bay. Professional assistance should be engaged, where necessary, to deal with any nascent health issue.*


     *God's desire is, "that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth" (3 John 1:2). But sickness in families could be a consequence of divine displeasure. Like leprosy, sin is contagious,

deadly to the body and damning to the soul. It must be nipped in the bud. Obeying God's word ensures wholesome health of spirit, soul and body.*


✍🏽```THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:``` _*Take responsibility for your body and soul.*_
