For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, (1 Tim. 4:8) Now that’s a convicting verse. How often I want to concentrate on the health of my body and how I can make it function or look better, but I forget to concentrate on the health of my soul and how I can make it function better.
Now it is important to take care of our bodies.
The above verse does NOT mean to neglect our bodies; our bodies are in fact the temple of the Holy Spirit. So there is certainly nothing wrong with exercise, fresh air, eating right, and so on. But that should not be our main emphasis. Training in godliness/growing in grace – these should be our main emphasis!
We should strive to live a Christ like life. We should daily present our bodies a living sacrifice to Him, Jesus Christ, the one who bought us with a price – this should be our main priority!
In Romans Paul basically begs us to live holy separated lives unto the Lord. He knew that this is the most important thing in life. (Romans 12:1-2)
There are, however, simple and practical ways that we can take care of our bodies; these are ways that would be pleasing to the Lord Jesus.
I’ve found a short free 5 day challenge that will help any of us in doing that. It’s a challenge to help us learn to eat mindfully by tuning in to our choices.
I have joined up with this course myself because I figure anyone can do a 5 day challenge. And I really want to focus on some of these challenges. Go ahead and join me Just go right over here and sign up.
What I like about this course is that it helps keep your mind Christ centered as you work on the challenge goals.
AND you don’t have to buy special foods or follow a certain diet.
This challenge is for those who want to focus on healthier eating from a faith-based perspective.
I’m looking forward to this little challenge and I hope you’ll join in too.
