Being healthy may seem to be somewhat superficial, when in reality it is vital to have a more productive life.

Exercising, having a balanced diet and consulting the doctor regularly are part of the best investment a person can make. In such a way that who takes care of your body, prevents any type of illnesses, besides contributing to a better quality of life.

Illness is a condition that affects both the sufferer and those around him.

A person who becomes ill requires medical attention, care and time. In most cases, these needs are covered by family members. In addition to the high economic cost that a disease can represent, there is also physical and emotional wear and tear for those who carry this burden.

The body is the temple of God

God gave man a sacred temple, and that is his body (1 Corinthians 6:19). However, many think that God has an obligation to take care of them and protect them from any disease.

These people use phrases such as: “God is my doctor”, “I am a child of God, He will take care of me” or “God has to help me”.

Yes, it is true that God heals, but the responsibility of keeping the body healthy belongs to the believer.

That is why, you should think about the importance of taking care of the temple that it has. Not abusing him, nor taking him shortly; but being a good Administrator; Doing everything necessary to keep it healthy.

“You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” (1 Corinthians 6:20).

That is why the Lord in this word, gives his children this mandate to honor him through spirit and body. This implies taking care of it both spiritually and physically. And although for many it is vanity, the word affirms it as a very important commandment.
