Many people respect the Bible for its religious significance cause it has practical advice for everyday living.
There are some Bible principles that can make your life better and also improve your life. They are;
° Take care of your body, “No man ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cherish it.” Ephesians 5:29. The Bible principle encourages us to do what we can to care for our physical health.
° Avoid Harmful Habits, “Let us cleanse ourselves of every defilement of flesh and spirit.” 2 Corinthians 7:1. The Bible principle means we benefit from not polluting our bodies with harmful substance.
° Be safety conscious “If you build a new house, you must also make a parapet for your roof, so that you may not bring blood guilt on your house because of someone falling from it”. -Deuteronomy 22:8
° Control your anger “The one who is slow to anger has great discernment but the impatient one displays his foolishness”. -Proverbs 14:29 When we develop the strength to control our emotions we benefit. Uncontrolled anger is destructive, in the heat of the moment angry people often say or do things that they will later regret. A practical way to control your anger is to get the facts before reacting, “the insight of a man certainly slows down his anger” -(Prov 19:11).
° Walk away from arguments “Beginning a fight is like opening a floodgate; before the quarrel breaks out, take your leave.” -Prov 17:14)
° Avoid unnecessary worry about the future “Never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties. Each day has enough of its own troubles.” -Matt 6:34
° Choose friendship wisely Bad associations corrupt good morals (1 Corinthians 15:33) The people you spend time with have great influence on you for good or for bad
