1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.
This passage Is powerful for me. There is no question to whom I belong, and to whom I give thanks for my very existence. My physical self is what God gave me, and He expects me to take care of it. This will not look the same for everyone, as we alone know what our bodies are capable of. But taking care of ourselves is a way to say “thank-you” to God for this most incredible gift.
Holy Father, you have given me life, a body in which to live it, and have promised eternal life beyond the bounds of the physical. I am so thankful, and will try to continue to honor this incredible gift from you. Amen
