“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land.” Exodus 20:12. The Bible has something to say about how to have a long life. It admonishes children to honor their parents. This states a general principle that obedience fosters self-discipline, which in turn brings stability and longevity in one’s life. Of course, there are exceptions. Some very disciplined Christians die young, and some wicked people live long. But the general principle applies. Living right not only pleases God, but it can also add years to your life. To add years to your life, subtract bad habits and multiply good deeds.
