Your Body and Your Mind

A healthy body and a sharp mind usually go together.

Did you know that there is a direct relationship between your physical fitness and your spiritual life? I am not saying that the fittest people are the most spiritual, or that unfit people are spiritually weak. You may not be able to do anything to improve your physical condition, yet you have every opportunity to grow spiritually.

However, if your body is run down because of the choices you make–such as eating poorly, never getting enough sleep, or rarely exercising–then your mind won’t be at its sharpest. And if your mind is dull, then you won’t be at your best spiritually. (If you don’t think so, try reading the Bible when you’re dead tired.)

God wants you to have a healthy body so you can have a healthy mind, because a healthy mind enables you to love God even more (Matthew 22:37).

God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:20
