Health isn't contagious

I've been reading in the Minor Prophets this past year using the S.O.A.P. study method. S.O.A.P. means Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer.

A simple yet profound way of going through the Bible on your own letting God speak to you through His Word.

I read in Haggai 2.11-14 this past week.

"This is what the Lord Almighty says; 'Ask the priests what the law says; If a person carries consecrated meat in the fold of his garment, and that fold touches some bread or stew, some wine, oil or other food, does it become consecrated? The priests answered, NO. Then Haggai said, "If a person defiled by contact with a dead body touches one of these things, does it become defiled?" YES, the priest replied, 'it becomes defiled.' Then Haggai said, "So it is with this people and this nation in my sight,' declares the Lord, 'Whatever they do and whatever they offer there is defiled."

I couldn't figure out that passage. I looked in a study Bible and in just a short sentence it made sense. The commentator said, "Sanctification cannot be transferred, but defilement can; just as health is not contagious, but disease can be.

I encourage you to think about that and ask if you are "contagious" or not.
