"For while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come." ESV
To be concerned about one's physical health is beneficial for living here in this life. To be concerned about one's spiritual life is beneficial for this life and crucial for eternal life. Take care of the body, God's temple, but our spiritual life is the number one priority in our lives with God.
Heavenly Father, we confess that we have not done our best to take care of our physical bodies, much less our spiritual lives. Forgive us for such neglect. Give us hunger for healthy spiritual lives which will result in our taking care of our physical bodies. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
