Memory Verse

“Your bodies are a holy sacrifice that is pleasing to God. When you offer your bodies to God, you are worshipping him”

Audio Icon   Romans 12:1



In this episode, Liz and his friends learn the importance of eating well. 1 Corinthians 6:19 teaches us that our “bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit.” You are called to honor God with your body, and that includes valuing it and taking care of it. God encourages you to take care of your whole being. That’s because you belong to God both physically and spiritually.

This is another way to show gratitude to God—by taking care of what he gave you through exercise and healthy eating habits. When you take care of your body, you also proclaim that God is worthy of your best.

Do you take good care of yourself?
