A Lifestyle of Healthful Living
Since our bodies, too, are trusts from God, instruments for glorifying and serving Him, we must take care of our bodies. We are good stewards of our bodies when we get the proper rest, eat the right foods, and exercise. With proper care of our bodies, we increase our usefulness to the Lord.
In Romans 12:1 Paul wrote, “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.” In speaking to the Corinthian Christians Paul wrote, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit Who is in you, Whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Paul considered our bodies a trust to be used for Jesus.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for giving me my life today and the life to come with You. Help me to be a good steward of my body and all things. In name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your journey as a steward!
