July 18 – Live Well Physically
When it comes to how we view our bodies, we can make two mistakes. On the one hand, we can idolize our bodies, and we see all sorts of ways in which that happens in popular culture. On the other hand, we can misuse our bodies and assume that only our “spiritual” dimension matters. By contrast, the Bible presents a more holistic approach and encourages us to see that we are embodied creatures. Thus, if we are to live well, we must take care of our bodies.
