Paul doesn’t say that our bodies are the shell that houses the spirit. Instead, he pictures a temple. That’s something valuable. Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit.
Because of this, we want to take care of them. We desire to honor God by the way we treat our bodies. Why? Because God says that we’re that important. And because our health matters to the one who made us and loves us.
As a result, we eat healthfully because we’re worth it. Because we’re called to something noble and great. Let’s face it, the better we feel, the better we can serve God’s purpose for our lives.
