When we hear the word health we automatically think of our bodies. We are taught that our bodies are the temple of the Lord 1Cor 6:19. I believe our bodies are also a gift from God and we should take care of this gift by eating healthily, exercising, ensuring adequate sunlight, fresh air, rest, hydrate with adequate water etc.
Doing these things for our bodies will not immune us from illnesses, however, Not doing these things will accelerate diseases and weaken our immune system to fight against infections. Neglecting to properly care for our bodies will also eventually affect various cognitive functions as well as our overall mood and temperament.
Just like our body, our Spirit, which encompasses our thoughts, judgment, desires, outlook on life, emotions, motivations, imaginations, ambitions, mood, is in need of targeted care and attention. In fact, it is our spirit that directs our brain which commands our bodies to execute. It is important to have a healthy spirit especially for those of us who desire to honor God and be good examples of Christlikeness.
I will be starting a series to help myself and anyone else who desires a spiritual detoxification cleanse, build and tone exercises for the spirit.
Look out for future post in this Spirit Health series.
