Vitamins and Painkillers

Recently I heard communications specialist Vanessa Van Edwards say people take two kinds of pills.

One is painkillers, and those are for immediate relief. It is obvious that we have a problem and need help. We don’t need charts or graphs to show why we need to take these pills.

The other type is vitamins. These have no immediate benefit. They are something that will not change our life if we neglect them for a day or two here and there. Sometimes we will even need reminding of their importance to motivate us to take them.

One pill is for today’s problem, and the other is a long-term solution.

Walking in faith as a follower of Jesus has a few painkillers, it is primarily vitamins.
