A lot of us want to know the secret to having a long, fulfilling life on earth. Well, look no further. Psalm 34 gives us specific instructions on positioning ourselves to having that long life.

Psalm 34:12 Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, 13 keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies. 14 Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

  1. Keep our tongue from evil and deceit.
    Talking about people’s appearance, gossiping, lying, and speaking negatively in general are all forms of evil speech. Doing the opposite such as, uplifting one another, remaining silent when there’s a temptation to gossip, telling the truth in love, and being positive will position us to long life.
  2. Depart from evil.
    Evil is doing anything contrary to the Word of God. Temptations to do evil will come. Resisting those temptations will fulfill our role to having a long life.
  3. Do good.
    There’s a sense of good that God placed in all of us. Helping the poor, being a blessing, and simply being nice to each other are forms of good. Knowing what’s good is not enough. We must act on it.
  4. Pursue peace.
    Maintaining peace is our responsibility. Avoiding arguments with our spouse, putting our pride aside, resisting the temptation to be offended, and removing ourselves from situations are all forms of pursuing peace. Avoid the drama and maintain peace.

A long fulfilling life is not a secret. When we do our part, a long fulfilling life is bound to happen.
