In our passage, Solomon says the Lord will give you what most of the people in this world are seeking after - a long life and health.

If you’re young, you’re not too concerned about these things yet, but you will be when you start growing old.

Solomon tells us where to find the veritable “Fountain of Youth” - It’s not in Florida, it’s not in some secret and unknown place of the world - It’s found in the path of righteousness.

The Lord will give you both a long life and the health to enjoy it if you will walk with Him in that path.

These are two more blessings the Lord promises to give you if you will trust in Him, walk with Him and seek to be useful: 

  • He will provide you with daily food and covering, and 
  • He will grant you a long and healthy life. 

You may look for these things in other places, but you will only find them in this path. The world can’t give these things to you, only Jesus can; and so trust in Him.
