Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV
Paul wanted us to see our own bodies as possessions owned by God but entrusted to us during our time on earth. What we see, do, eat and drink with our bodies serves to either nourish or destroy this treasure loaned to us.
And it is priceless, even if we don’t like the way it looks. We are given one body for all of life. Should we fill our stomachs with whatever we crave—or with what will best strengthen and nourish our bodies?
As we relinquish our autonomous attitudes and realize that we are caretakers, not only of the money with which God has entrusted us, but also of the bodies He gave us, we understand better why we must live His way in all areas of our lives.
