Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself?
1 Corinthians 6:15a
Some Christians are very busy. With work, families and ministry, we barely have a chance to rest.
Finding time to exercise can be tough. How long do we need? 20-30 minutes? One 30-minute TV show a few times a week? Exercise does not require a fancy gym membership. What about a walk during our morning prayers, a short walk after dinner or maybe even a walk during our lunch break?
Healthier eating options can be tricky Unhealthy food choices are easier and sometimes less expensive. We have to make choices. Sometimes just eating less food is good. Nowadays there is a bunch of unnecessary “Super-size” options. We do not need to “Super-size” everything. A regular portion is enough most people. Another idea would be to eat more vegetables and lower the amount of the other foods you consume.
These are starting suggestions. Just remember that the more we do to take care of our body, the better our body will be to serve Him. We take care of our bodies because it is the temple of the Holy Spirit. It is not about vanity or turning heads. We must also remember not to obsess over taking care of our body. It is about taking care of the vessel that the Lord has given us to do His work. We maintain our cars and keep them fueled appropriately so when we need to use them, they are ready. In the same respect, we have to maintain our body and feed it properly so when God needs to use our bodies to serve Him, we are ready. Read More Here
Making healthy food choices is part of taking care of our bodies.
“The wise woman builds her house” Proverbs 14:1a
Constant unhealthy food choices will not help your body to be at its best to serve the Lord.
“but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.” Proverbs 14:1b
Why healthy food choices?
- To help us think clearly to understand the directives He gives us to serve Him.
- To help us have good energy to follow-through on the directives to serve Him
- To help us be strong enough to stay the course while serving Him.
Food is the fuel for our body. Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We can’t feed our bodies with straw and sticks, metaphorically speaking, and expect it to withstand like it made with bricks.
I am not suggesting removing all unhealthy food choices instantly. I am suggesting adding more healthy choices. This is a positive journey and we are focusing on adding to our lives.
When you make your food choices, are you considering that you are fueling body, the body you are using to serve Him? Unhealthy food choices are sometimes cheaper, faster and more appealing to the taste. Is that helping you work toward your goal of tuning up your body to serve Him better?
Honestly assess your food choices. Find at least one area where you can add more healthy food choices is to your diet, and do it. Please share the area you choose in the comment area and how you plan on making it happen.
