Taking Care of Your Body

Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live. -Jim Rohn

Recently an ailing shoulder inhabilitated me so that I couldn’t workout at the gym effectively.  My shoulder wasn’t just a shoulder problem, it also affected whether my chest, back, biceps, and triceps could perform the workout.  Never before did I realize more vividly that the body is connected!  Similarly the church (and the people in it) is the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 12-26); we are a team.  I’ve learned from working in a church that when one person on the team hurts then it can affect how the rest of the team performs.  Wherever you are a part of a team—school, church, or work—decide that when someone is hurting, you will be one to encourage the person so that they heal.  You don’t just help the person; you help the entire team. 

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up... (1 Thessalonians 5:11, NIV).
