The older I get, the more I want to maintain my physical health as well as my spiritual health…
3 John 2 (NKJV)
2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
We can be much more effective for God in doing Kingdom work if we are in good health. Too many times people who exercise and eat well, don’t necessarily do it to BE fit, but to LOOK fit. It’s easy for vanity to slip in. That’s why most gyms and diet plans promote LOOKING good instead of being HEALTHY.
So, in order to be fit and monitor our health, we have to learn to not just watch WHAT GOES INTO our bodies, but also MONITOR WHAT COMES OUT. It’s an indicator of our gastrointestinal health.
Even Yeshua the Messiah let us know that everyone has to poop…
Matthew 15:17 (NKJV)
17 Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated?
If your poop is not normal for a prolonged period of time, it’s a good idea to visit your doctor. I love the way a recent Healthline article explained how to easily ‘know your poop’…
The article included the Bristol Scale that greatly simplifies knowing your _______________.
Remember, our bodies are temples in which the Spirit of the Living God lives. And, just like ministry, taking care of them isn’t always pretty or pleasant.
Make sure you are always ‘doo dooing’ what it takes to take care of yourself.
