100 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 3

A renewed desire and drive for physical fitness.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have fromGod, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

The verse above is first and foremost in the context of sexual purity. However, I think it can be applied to the totality of one’s physical existence here on this side of Heaven. As I live through the first years of the fourth decade (!) of my life, I’m thankful for friends and coworkers who’ve started a journey together towards greater stewardship of the one body we received.
