The lockdown has caused many of us to put on a little weight just by not getting out of the house. While God teaches us to keep away from vanity, how do we reconcile wanting to look good with keeping the faith?
God also said to be a representation of God on earth, built to glorify God in all that you do, and say, and that includes appearance. You can take care of your physical temple and thank God for the life he has given you by eating healthy food, and regular exercise out in God’s beautiful world.
Healthy living is more than appearance. Remind yourself of the blessed reasons that you want to be healthy. Do you feel like you don’t have the energy to share in activities with friends and loved ones? Do you wish you could be able to volunteer more at church, and in God’s ministry? These are the good reasons to lose weight and stay healthy.
