What Kind of Choices Should We Make For Our Personal Health?
Our very-life is a gift from God, and we are the “guardians” of this physical body that God gave us. It just makes good-common-sense to treat our physical body with respect, and to keep it as healthy as we possibly can… we cannot be as effective for what God wants in our lives, for ourselves and others, if our bodies are not in good health.
As a believer in Christ, the Bible tells us that our bodies are not our own. Therefore, we cannot rightfully disrespect our bodies as though they were made to be under our own absolute control.
We belong to God…
Do you not know that your body is the temple of The Spirit of Holiness who dwells within you, whom you have received from God, and you are not your own?
1 Corinthians 6:19
When you think about it… It’s really quite foolish that many people give their pets, cars, and houses, more attention and better care than is given to the health and care of their own bodies.

It is never too late to make a change for the better –
- The first step – is to recognize (or admit) that you need to make a change,
- The second step – is to ACT on it.
