Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.
To be a good steward of your body is to keep it healthy. Just about everyone is concerned with their weight; mostly those, who find themselves on the heavier side of their ideal poundage. Especially now, at the beginning of the summer months, we tend to be more critical of our shapes than when they are covered by winter coats. More importantly, keeping our bodies fit allows us to better serve our Lord and honor His gift. FULL POST

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 (New International Version)
The Lord has given us our bodies to be respected, hallowed and kept healthy. This is an enormous responsibility that is often neglected, as we all too often allow ourselves to decline into disarray and sickness. It may be true that the Lord alone heals. But often He does so by giving us the incentive, the technology and the necessary tools. All we need to do is open our eyes and accept His gifts. FULL POST
