Where the world comes to study the Bible

J. Vernon McGee and Vitamins

J. Vernon McGee once attributed the secret to his longevity and ongoing strength to the fact that he took 12-14 vitamin pills a day. One day he saw a man much older than he, and McGee bragged, “There isn’t a thing I can’t do today that I couldn’t do when I was 16!” The old-timer was astounded, “Really?” “Yes,” McGee replied. “It just shows what a pathetic 16-year-old I was.”
