Bodily Neglect

So you think you can eat bon-bons forever and not pay up for it? At the very least a few pounds will gather, or at the worst some disease like diabetes or heart trouble might show up. It’s not like God hasn’t given us warnings.

He who is loose and slack in his work is brother to him who is a destroyer and he who does not use his endeavors to heal himself is brother to him who commits suicide.(Proverbs 18:9, AMP)

And the Amplified Bible adds this explanation: Its statement squarely addresses the problem of whether one has a moral right to neglect his body by “letting nature take its unhindered course” in illness.

I’m as guilty as everyone, but my goal is to better look after the body that the Lord gave me. That’s why I investigated the subject and wrote God, Gluttony & You.

Prayer – Lord we ask your help to be kind our bodies, after all, they are top quality, from the manufacturer- you! Amen.
