A Temple on Earth

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

Our bodies are wonderful things. Just to think of the circulation, digestive, and nerve systems is mind boggling. To be healthy, we must take care of them with nutritious food, exercise, and regular rest. But they are not to be worshipped. Christians understand that our bodies are more than just a physical entity. By faith, they become a temple of God himself.

And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple (1 Peter 2:5).
