Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (ESV)


I learned late in life how important it is to have a holistic approach to your health. Now I think of it as a three-legged stool with a leg for life’s spiritual, mental, and physical parts. Neglecting any one area will make the chair unstable.

It’s fascinating how interdependent all of the legs are. I’ve found that digging into my Bible motivated me to take better care of my body. And in turn, taking care of my body built up my faith. Both of these things improved my mental clarity and well-being. They are all closely linked, and this is because our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Consider this and check if you’re equally tending to all three aspects of your health.
