“For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church.”- Ephesians 5:29
Keep in mind what your reasons are when setting any fitness goals. The best thing is to live healthier because you love and care about yourself, and more specifically your body.
Your body is a gift from God. He created you with a divine potential.
It’s not necessary to be crazy in shape or have a one hundred percent clean diet but we need to take care of ourselves.
Being in shape or healthy for anyone else is not going to be a good motivator for all times. Trying to do things to impress others is not a solid reason. Your desire to be a better you needs to come from the knowledge that you are unique with divine mission.
Being healthy gives us so many more opportunities and abilities to serve others. When we are fit and able we can go out to help people.
The Word of Wisdom also tells us to eat well and be healthy so we can work hard and serve the Lord.
We need to take care of ourselves for ourselves and for the Heavenly Father that gave us our bodies.
