Your Body – Your Temple

Posted by Troy on 20th May 2012 in Human Nature

C.S. Lewis described the Holy Trinity is that The Holy Ghost is that part inside of us which prays to God, Jesus stands behind us and lets us speak to God, and the Father receives our prayers.  What this means is that God, at least a part of God, resides inside each and every one of us.  This literally makes your body a temple of God.  As such, it is wise of you not to desecrate the temple.  You owe it to God to maintain this temple and ensure that it last as long as possible.  Avoid abusing it, feed it quality foods, avoid substances that hurt it, and exercise regularly.

Even if you do not believe in God, there are plenty of selfish reasons to protect this gift that God (or nature) has given you.  Your body is the only place your mind and spirit will reside in for all your life.  Your mind and spirit are tied to your body.  A healthy body will let you do more things you love to do.  A healthy body will keep you safer from disease.  It will make you stronger, more attractive, and will increase your energy levels.

Take care of yourself, and your life will be all the richer.
