Never too early, never too late, never too far "gone" to make that decision.

Amen. The health habits you engage in during your "young years" will either bless you or curse you in your senior years.

I have struggled in the past with the opposite end of this spectrum. I put to much focus building the physical man and not the spiritual. Pride got in the way and lessons got learned. Thank God he will correct us gently and show us His ways!

I preached this one last week. wherever the spirit of the living God dwells is holy and set apart. The tabernacle was constructed under strict detail in which God would come and go. shouldn't our bodies be held to the same standard especially when God's spirit dwells daily?

Probably one of the most neglected aspects of the Christian faith....keeping ourselves healthy to do good for others. How many strive to keep healthy for themself?...not a lost need, but to keep oneself healthy for doing for others! there's a need! Thank you Lord for health and seeing the need for it!

DAY 244: Are You Taking Care of Yourself?

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?  1 Corinthians 3:16

It's easy to take this body for granted. Just remember it has a limited number of uses - so make every day count, and don't miss your chance to give thanks to God for walking with you through this crazy life.

Taking care of yourself puts you in a better position to serve others who need your energy, strength, stamina, and sharp mind.

Get your rest:. We become vulnerable to poor decisions when we are tired.

Eat healthy: Feed the machine with what it needs to run at peak performance.

Exercise:  Stay loose, keep your strength, do hard things. This prepares us for the hard work of helping our neighbor.

So, are you presenting your body as a living sacrifice to God?
