  • Give attention to the lasting

    There is a renewed interest in better health as evidenced by the emphasis on health clubs and exercise and better eating habits. There seems to be a desire to get fit and stay fit. Paul tells us that God bought us and we are not our own so we are to glorify him in our bodies (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

    If we stay as fit as possible we will live a better life and be able to serve God more effectively. God put us here primarily to love and serve him.
