Cancer lives off the host and in the end kills the host—thereby killing itself. What an illogical thing to do! Why would we allow anything to continue within ourselves and feed that thing until it kills us? Bitterness is one mindset that is destructive to the self (Hebrews 12:15 Hebrews 12:15Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
American King James Version×
). There are other thought patterns that are also detrimental to ourselves—and for some reason we seem to revel in those, too.

Pride, vanity, bitterness, envy and the thirst for power are some of the works of the flesh that consume our time and finally take our lives. God wondered about the nation of Israel—why would they choose death just to have their own way (Ezekiel 18:31 Ezekiel 18:31Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby you have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will you die, O house of Israel?
American King James Version×
)? All of God's admonitions are given to promote life. Choosing any other way is the well-travelled road to death (Matthew 7:13 Matthew 7:13Enter you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

). Life ends soon enough without out hastening that day. Fight those cancers.
