안녕하세요, family and friends. Today, we’re going to read Exodus 38.
I want to say Happy Monday to you all, hope you all had a good weekend. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a physical copy of the Bible or have not read this chapter. You can read it on Page 2 of this blog post.
In this chapter, we are shown the intricacies that went into building the Tabernacle. It showed us that God works in the most wondrous ways to keep his house clean, pure and holy.
From 1 Corinthians in the New Testament, it is stated that we are the temple of God. So, it is our duty to keep our bodies clean, pure and holy. One of the most fundamental ways to do this is through prayer and penance. But the most important way is to follow God’s commandments.
But if anyone violates the Temple of God, God will destroy him. For the Temple of God is holy, and you are that Temple.1 Corinthians 3:17 CPDV
We shouldn’t put our bodies through any situation in which we can taint the cleanliness, purity and holiness of God’s temple.
Such as substance abuse, inconsistent sleeping habits, an unhealthy diet and excessive inactiveness.
Our bodies belong to God as much as it belongs to ourselves. We should be grateful for the way God has made us one-of-a-kind, with our own quirks and intricacies. A way for us to show our gratitude is through doing these simple steps of caring for our own bodies:
- Take everything in moderation, stay away from extremes
- Establish a more consistent sleeping habit, going to bed and waking up at the same time each day.
- Choosing the foods and drink that goes into your body, making sure that they are filled with nutrients that could build your body up
- Taking time to exercise or walk around and not just sitting or laying around all day.
