Temple of God

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”  
 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Why do we abuse our bodies with over eating, lack of exercise, smoking, drinking, drugs, and the list goes on?  Is it because we think we know best or that we just don't want to listen to others that have made these same mistakes and have learned from them.  Christ paid the ultimate price so that we could live a life that is clean and glorifying to God.  So the next time you think about having that second piece of pie or make an excuse to do what you want to do.  Show the same respect for your body as you do for your church.  Remember you are the church and you are the Temple of God!
