The body is for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. By His power God raised Jesus from the dead, and he will raise us also.  1 Corinthians 6:13-14 (NIV)

Many times we take our bodies for granted.  We don’t think of it as the gift that it truly is.  We are capable of many things, but the abilities are not just for us.  God cares about our bodies.  He created within them many capabilities we don’t think about.  He encourages us to take care of ourselves as our body was created as a way we can serve God and others.

Prayer: God, thank you for the reminder that my body is important.  I don’t want to take it for granted, but I want to use it to serve you.  Show me what I need to do differently to keep my body healthy and use it to serve you better.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
