What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
We have heard the phrase, “You are what you eat.” Consider what you consume and put into your body on a regular basis: do you think that you treat your body as a temple of the Holy Ghost? I know that I have been guilty of gluttony and have had issues with alcohol that I am not proud of. This life is a gift and we only have one shot. What a shame it is to waste our time and health on weaknesses of the flesh. Sadly, in these modern times, gluttony is literally a deadly sin.
My body is a temple of the Holy Ghost. Give me this day my daily bread, and the strength and wisdom to accept only my daily amount. Lord, I pray that You help me to approach all things with moderation, but know that I am a sinner. I want what I cannot have, and that which I do have, I want more of. Hold my hand, loving God, and show me the path towards a healthy and loving relationship with You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
