We are building houses day by day
Included in our life of eat, sleep and play.
Our food is the lumber that we choose
And the best of materials must be used.
That’s meat and veg, fruit and eggs
And exercise offers nails and pegs.
While we sleep the Carpenter takes all
And quietly fashions to His call.
If we make wise choices, when we are old
We’ll have a home we’re proud to hold
No need for fixing, or doing repairs
For well-chosen product wears the cares.
1 Thessalonians 4:3-5- One final word, friends. We ask you—urge is more like it—that you keep on doing what we told you to do to please God, not in a dogged religious plod, but in a living, spirited dance. You know the guidelines we laid out for you from the Master Jesus. God wants you to live a pure life. Keep yourselves from sexual promiscuity. Learn to appreciate and give dignity to your body, not abusing it, as is so common among those who know nothing of God (AMP).
Prayer: God, help us to treat our body like the temple it is (1Corinthians 6:20-MSG).
