Today I received a newsletter from the United Methodist Church Health Ministry that highlighted a paragraph from a book I read about a year ago – Every Body Matters: Strengthening Your Body to Strengthen Your Soul, by Gary Thomas.
“Desiring a silver soul means that we stop treating our bodies like ornaments – with all the misguided motivations often displayed by those who build their bodies out of pride and ambition – and start treating our bodies like instruments, vessels set apart to serve the God who fashioned them.(my emphasis) Whether we have strong or weak bodies, healthy or sick, over nourished or undernourished, how do we begin moving from where we are now to more purposefully building bodies that function like instruments?”
I encourage you to care for your body as an instrument – a fit instrument – so you can better do the work that God has for you to do.
Have a great day, in Christ Jesus!
