Faith and Fitness

There’s a verse in the Bible that says…”don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you? Don’t you know that you have the Holy Spirit from God, and you don’t belong to yourselves? You have been bought and paid for, so honor God with your body”.

So how is it possible that in a country where  81 percent of the population say that they have always believed in God, we also see:

  •  36% of the adult population diagnosed as clinically obese,
  • Lifestyle diseases such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer increasing year after year,
  • Medical costs associated with obesity increasing year after year (In 2008, they exceeded $147 billion)

It doesn’t make sense…does it?

So, I ask the question….

  • How are you honoring your temple?

    I love this quote:

    “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” ~ Larry Elder

    Use any means, faith, amazing quotes, friends etc. to help you stay motivated and on track.

    The picture in this post for running motivation is hilarious :)

    One of my favorite Bible quotes goes something like this: Blessed is the land when it’s leaders eat for strength and not for pleasure.

    Anyone been to a Capitol Hill dinner party lately?
