One of my clients copied and pasted this quote from Joel Olsteen and sent this to me this week. This is a great spiritual motivator to take care of your physical health. I figure since today’s Sunday, it’s a great day to share what the word of God says about taking care of your physical body.
“Dear friend, I am praying that all is well with you and that your body is as healthy as I know your soul is” 3 John 2 (TLB).
Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria Osteen
All of us have prioritized our lives in some form or fashion, whether consciously or unconsciously. Maybe you don’t do it purposefully, but you organize your life based on a hierarchy of needs and interests. The Bible makes it clear that maintaining physical health should be one of the highest priorities for us. God created you to be active, healthy and ready for what He has for you. God has great things planned for you, but you won’t be able to accomplish them if you’re unhealthy and unprepared. The apostle John wrote to a close friend and made sure that he knew physical health was just as essential as spiritual health. Being physically health is not just a good idea – it’s a good spiritual idea!
A Prayer for Today
God, I know that my physical health is of importance to You as well as my spiritual health. I want to dedicate my body to Your service and glory, so please help me to be in the best physical condition possible. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
