They say the body is a temple. I experienced this tonight during my meditation. For the first time in a long time, I mused on how I must refuse to put the unhealthy in my body. May it be the the ingredients of the supplement capsules I take, or the soda I drink. I have to make a change and start treating my body as I do my temple. God has given us this body to not abuse it but rather use it for all the many holy attributes it has in it.
In today’s world, with all the junk food, soda, and bad fat items, sugar etc. there are so many temptations to eat unhealthily. I’m a culprit of this, but today I realized I must love my body more. I give it exercise everyday, but I must also nourish it even more. Life is too short to not take care of this precious gift we’ve been given. I hope we can all love our bodies so that they love us back as they grow older.
