7 Ways a Healthy Faith Creates a Healthy Mind

7 Ways a Healthy Faith Creates a Healthy Mind September 23, 2016

Mental health and faith can feel like two separate worlds. For many people, they look at life as either spiritual or physical/mental. Mixing the two is like trying to mix steak and Kraft Dinner. They just don’t seem to fit. But this is not healthy, because a healthy mind is a healthy soul.

The phrase “Mental Health” does not appear in the Bible. Yet to ignore our mental health would be a huge mistake in our development as a person.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, your soul and your mind. Jesus, Matthew 22:37.

Why did Jesus say it this way?

He didn’t say, “Love God with your body, your brain, your hand, and your foot…” These are body parts and on their own, they are empty of life. By saying “Love God with your heart, soul, and mind” he asked each one of us to love God with our very emotions, our thoughts, our dreams, and our passions.
