Temple Care

Your body is a temple, but only if you treat it as one. (Astrid Alauda, author)

There seems to be no end to what people can and will do to their bodies. Externally, we see all kinds of tattoos, piercings, and clothing. Internally, many are affected by poor diets and lack of exercise, to say nothing about drug abuse. Have we forgotten that God wants to live within people who trust him? In that sense, we do indeed become temples, worthy of great care.

Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? (1 Corinthians 6:19)
